About this grant

The Karoo Centre for Human Rights works to promote access to justice by poor and marginalized communities in the Eastern, Western, and Northern Cape provinces. The centre supports advice offices in mostly rural areas and small towns, providing them with hands-on support in areas including the development of appropriate organizational systems and structures, dealing with case work, and governance. It also facilitates training of paralegals in collaboration with the Walter Sisulu University in the Eastern Cape province. This grant increase will support the centre to strengthen its internal systems and structure.
