Bio Idiris Abdi Mohamed is the Senior Paralegal at Horizon Institute, a Somaliland NGO working to advance access to justice and the rule of law through research, institution building and legal empowerment.

At Horizon Institute, Idiris Abdi Mohamed is part of a team of paralegals working to assist persons in police and prison detention. Their team is working to promote systematic change in Somaliland’s criminal justice system through empowering people who are detained in police stations and prisons and their families to gain justice. Paralegals work directly with detained persons and their families to know and use the legal protections afforded by Somaliland’s laws. Horizon is harnessing the knowledge gained from assisting thousands of individuals to push for systematic changes that will create a criminal justice system that is more accountable to the people it serves.

I found Namati for searching Internet webs, you are progresses Organization in the World that is prompted me to join with you.

Peggy Nyambura Mburu, a lawyer based in Kenya. I found Namati through a job advertisement. I am passionate about legal empowerment through training and advocacy. I joined Namati because I like the work you do and also because I know networking works and this is a platform for networking. I am the founder of an organisation that seeks to provide shelter to women survivors of domestic violence and equip them with skills that will help them become economically empowered. The organisation is fairly new and I would like help in setting up the structures and programes for fundraising purposes. I look forward to learning a lot from this forum and to forging networks and collaborations.

Hi everyone my name is Juan Cipriano from Entre Ríos in Argentina. I got amazed discovering the existance of a network with this commitment. I’m glad to join and to share what I may have. I came here from an international conference early back in November talking with a member (@martaalmela) and asking about Australia having current proyects working the empowerment of communities since am planning to stay there a couple of years, and she suggested coming and see by myself. As in my personal introduction, the good surprise there were people all over the place worried about getting closer the law at the clouds and people on the soil made me want to get into it and learn really how is it done on the daily in other contruies. The formation in my law school it’s kind of the opposite, worry about keeping perfect law skies for people that do not stand the soil, always seated on desks, cars or stepping on high looking flats. That way I feel it senseless being a lawyer, that’s why I’m enthusiastic with this kind of communities. Hug for all of you, it is a pleasure.

Hi Juan, @Cipriano @tobiaseigen @ovuevurayeesosuo @mmiranda @marlonmanuel @peggynyambura
I am happy to see you in this network. After 20 years legal practice in Bulgaria I decided to make a big move and to immigrate in Canada with the family in a quest for a more just and organized society. The Canadian legal system is conservative and difficult to get in for a newcomer like me. There are many hidden barriers but there are also many people who would like to help as well. I am interested to find and to work for international legal project which can benefit the communities in Canada or overseas. Maybe we can brainstorm together for something which can be inspiring for us. Thank you very much for your time. Alexandar

If I can be recommended to our leaders through your help and support. Our leaders are very hard to talk to. What i needed most is direction on how to make success in this journey. I believe in picture report. But for now I only have my Nysc project report with me as evidence, I need to work hard if i am given guidelines.

Welcome to the Global Legal Empowerment Network @ovuevurayeesosuo, Its good to have you here. Keep up the good work you are carrying out in the communities. There are several ways you can increase visibility for your work which can lead you to gain support.

  1. Since your organization is health related and you provide services, you may want to write to medical/ Health Associations in your state or LGA for partnerships, this I’ve found to be very effective. They may not give you money but they can volunteer members and time to promote reach for your target group.
  2. Write to companies that manufacture the medical supplies you need for an outreach or two and always remember to give feedback on how materials donated were used.
  3. Identify friends, family and community members who have interest in your cause and can support it to make little donations, this goes a long way and it helps to reach more people.
  4. Always be accountable, keep records and open it up for more volunteers to join. Wish you the best!
