Hi @tobiaseigen

Many thanks for the warm welcome. I’m very excited to be part of this amazing network. My current areas of focus is criminal justice reform, accountability for gender based violence and citizenship and legal identity (in particular of children in slums and the impact this has on education and other protections). Look forward to learning from the experience of other colleagues!

A very warm welcome to all the new members as well! :smile:

I am Comfort Chizinga a human rights activist from Malawi as earlier mentioned. I am passionate about my community and the minority groups that reside in it specifically the adolescent girls and young women. I work with Youth Net and Counselling a youth based non governmental organization that deals with rights of Youths, Women and Children. I read about this forum online when i was applying for a short leadership course from Budapest .

I joined this community because i want to learn and get the experience my fellow activist get from other communities, how they deal with challenges and get ideas on how i can make my community safe for minority groups and the like.

I hope to interact with other activists and learn more about new cultures.

Thank you. This is highly appreciated. I’m still feeling my way around. I actually thought I have already signed up a while back. Turns out that upon checking, it may only have been for the mailing list.

I currently have my hands full in relation to grassroots organizing efforts, as well as policy advocacy. Both are being undertaken in both professional and volunteer capacity.

I am looking forward to learning and exchanging ideas.

Thanks again!

Good morning colleagues,

I really appreciate your different challenges as a part contribution to this Legal Empowerment Network, it means as a Paralegal in Southern Africa am so encouraged to be more vocal for the sidelined and vuranable community.

The challenges are of great in terms of not being recognised by our Justice courts as NGO’s.

The funding of Advice Centres it’s a huge problem as our office deals with issue of housing and illegal evictions etc.

Thank you for allowing one to air her views on this platform.
