Thanks for registering me into the Global Legal Empowerment Network and I feel confident that my association with this huge network will be worthwhile. I believe that my participation in the network’s activities and community discussions thereof shall assist in my daily legal empowerment endeavors through experience sharing encouragement.

I am working on building the capacity of people who come into conflict with the law by providing basic legal advice and assistance to suspects. I am also facilitating referral of petty offences from the formal justice system to Village Mediators or assist Village Mediators to refer serious cases to the formal justice system.

We support community rights to land and other natural resources. We promote proactive strategies to make communities aware of the opportunities and challenges of extractives and equip them with the knowledge and tools to monitor and challenge illegal actions by the industry and speculators. We use legal strategies in pursuing change, and these include legal advisory as well as legal representation for vulnerable groups.
