About this grant
The Centre for Rural Legal Studies focuses on protecting and promoting the rights of farmworkers and their families in the Eastern, Western, and Northern Cape provinces. This grant will continue to support the Centre for Rural Legal Studies to train and mentor paralegals in these community-based organizations to provide services to farmworkers and marginalized communities. It also will support the Centre for Rural Legal Studies to conduct research to establish the nature and causes of labor disputes and look at ways to proactively address these problems through educating both farmworkers and farmowners.
