Community empowerment : is what we are doing working?

What do we look for in a community to say :

Aha!- this community - that we have worked with for the past x years is now empowered or in the process of being empowered. We have been able to address injustices.

This conversation builds up from this last discussion , in which we looked at the impact of our work on people centred justice.

We know that it is easier to look at impact or transformation on a case to case basis, at the individual level, but more difficult to analyse the impact of our work within a community as a whole.

To help us unpack this weighty (sometimes very confusing) issue, we are happy to invite you to a conversation with Kituo cha Sheria (Kenya) , Namati -Citizenship Justice ( Kenya), Public Interest Law Clinic ( Uganda) , Community Advice Offices South Africa and The Advocates for Human Rights and Democracy ( South Sudan)

Date : Tuesday, October 19th , 2021

Time: 02:00 PM East Africa Time

Join Zoom Meeting: Launch Meeting - Zoom

We look forward to your participation ,
