Hello. Am happy to be part of this community.
My name is Obore Joseph, Ugandan by Nationality. I am the founder and Executive Director of Action for Development of Local Communities (ADOL) https://oboreadol.wixsite.com/adol - a Community Based Organization working and operating in Bukedea District, eastern part of Uganda. We work with women, elderly and youth through implementing projects geared towards enabling them have access to human rights and legal empowerment.
We are currently implementing a project which involves 3 months training of 100 elderly persons and 5 months community empowerment through community education, sensitization and awareness raising on laws and human rights relating to succession and inheritance especially in making a will.
I got to know about Global Legal Empowerment Network through Namati news letter, I therefore read more about you and highly developed an interest in being part of the movement for legal empowerment with fellow members working with Civil Society Organizations. After I read about you, I realized that it is a network for people who are putting the power of law in to peoples hands of which I am one of them!
I will need help in some of the following areas:
Provision of legal empowerment resources.
Funding opportunities for legal empowerment projects.
Learning exchange visits to explore more on what other people do regarding legal empowerment and to share insights and lesson for effective implementation of legal empowerment projects.
Advocacy and campaign mechanisms
I am more reachable by other platforms especially on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/obore.joseph.7
