Dear friends,

Hope you are having a blessed day.

I am a Paralegal Practitoner from Nepal dedicated to advancing justice. I have joined the Global Legal Empowerment Network as a member. I am so happy to be a part of it .I would like to work with NAMATI to advance justice by equipping people to know, use, and shape the laws that affect them. I am fighting to protect basic rights in Nepal. I want to use my knowledge of the formal justice system, alternative means of resolution such as mediation, and community-education practices to help the poor and marginalized resolve their justice problems.

I want to work with NAMATI in the days to come.I am in need of your support to enhance justice in Nepal.

May the almighty keep you happy and healthy.

Hello all thanks for welcoming me,

My name is Aminata Margai I’m a Sierra Leonean and a Medical Nurse by profession and also an Entrepreneur. I want to take this opportunity to introduce Brekham Enterprise.

Hello everyone. Although not practicing, I am a paralegal and pursuing a law degree. My area of interest amongst others, is forensic medicine. I have started locating members of communities who have been wronged and sent home by the hospitals. Most of these members do not know their rights in relation to recourse. One of the important cases,is that of a cerebral palsy victim. These are but the few. Again, thank you for sharing and I hope to learn a lot from this community. Regards
