About this grant

The Community Law and Rural Development Centre promotes equitable access to justice for rural and marginalized communities in the KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape provinces through providing support, training, and funds for advice offices and paralegals. This grant increase will support the organization in meeting a budget shortfall and support advice offices that are part of the organization, through which it provides legal advice to poor and marginalized communities on their rights and how to access these rights.
