My name is Salaudeen Akeem from Nigeria. I came across this prestigious network on Google platform. I join the network because I believe it can be an avenue for me to research on gender violence etc., and learn about other things related to gender discussions. It is a rare opportunity to be among this community of scholars. Hope to meet people here .


Hi @UkahaUmaDouglas , @PhillipMatavu and @AkeemSalaudeen welcome to the Legal Empowerment Network!

To start, I would encourage you to:

  • Explore the forum and the discussions that are taking place at the moment.
  • Explore the Resource Library, where you will find hundreds of resources about legal empowerment & access to justice. In specific, @AkeemSalaudeen you might want to check out our resources on gender-based violence.
  • @PhillipMatavu, you can check out our member directory for organizations in Zambia and connect with any members in the network!
