New 2-minute Animation: When Land Laws are Not Enough, Enter the Barefoot Lawyers

In this two-minute animation, Namati’s CEO, Vivek Maru, explains how “barefoot lawyers” help connect communities with justice.

The video was produced by the Thompson Reuters Foundation for their new initiative, Place. Through exclusive reportage, analysis, commentary, photographs and video, Place explores the complex social, economic and political effects of inadequate land rights – from environmental sustainability and food insecurity to the potential for conflict and war. This animation is the first in their ‘Place Animations’ series.
