Jambo Nairobi! Network Members Meet and Greet (7 Aug, 2019)

Update: @AimeeOngeso wrote a roundup post below about the #meetandgreet in Nairobi, with stunning photos and a summary of topics discussed.

Following the success of last year’s event in Kibra, Nairobi, the Global Legal Empowerment Network team, together with @namati_citizenship and @namati_clp, is excited to be organizing another Network Member Meet & Greet in Nairobi.

This is an informal event meant to give Network members an opportunity to connect, share, and learn about each other’s work. Members are encouraged to attend at their convenience - specifically those within Nairobi. Please note that we are not covering any travel and other logistical costs.

Details of the event

Date and Time: Wednesday, 7 August 2019 from 5.00pm to 8.00pm Kenyan time

Venue: PAWA254 2nd Floor, Africa Alliance of YMCAs Building, State House CRE, Nairobi City, Kenya.

RSVP: Please RSVP or notify us if you think you will be attending. Kindly note that there are limited slots which shall be filled up on a rolling basis. To RSVP, reply to this forum topic or email community@namati.org.

This event hopes to promote discussions and share global, regional and national updates on legal empowerment and access to justice between members and Namati staff, and is an exciting opportunity for network members to interact and engage beyond the online network.

We are looking forward to meeting members of the Network who are building our movement and working every day to put the power of law in people’s hands. This is also an opportunity to meet Namati CEO @vivekmaru who is in town and keen to meet and get to know network members here. He will be speaking about legal empowerment at this event. You will also hear more first hand about the recent Community Land Protection victory that has been all over the news this week from @davidarach and @eileenwakesho.

Here’s a link to last year’s event (with pictures) as we hope to make this year’s event even more vibrant!
