About this grant

The Community Law and Rural Development Centre supports a network of advice offices working in rural areas of the KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa. The grantee provides training to advice offices which provide free essential legal services to poor communities on various topics. Past support enabled the grantee to train paralegals and management committees of advice offices while providing continuing legal education to advice offices in their network. This grant will enable the grantee to continue providing training to community advice offices in their network, finalize the accreditation of their training program, and build relationships with local business.
