Hi @LaminAronKamara @SebitJamesAmedeyo and @EmmanuelBida thank you very much for joining the introduction! That’s an interesting activity to celebrate the women’s day.

Here is a list of things you might find interesting to do as you start engaging in the forum:

  • Exploring the forum and the discussions that are taking place at the moment.
  • Exploring the Resource Library, where you will find resources about legal empowerment & access to justice.
  • Exploring the Network’s Member Directory and connect with like minded individuals from across the world


My name is Franka Egbe a Cameroonian currently studying an Advanced master’s in governance and development at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. I am a seasonal humanitarian worker with an interest in children’s and women’s rights, community justice, and Land rights. I joined this network because I want to build up my skills as a paralegal to;

  • give an opportunity and protection to the poor and vulnerable people
  • protect poor people from injustice such as wrong eviction, exploitation, and extortion of lands. I also intend to undertake the 101 legal empowerment course to acquire more knowledge needed for a humanitarian worker and paralegal.


Best Regards
