About this grant

The Legal Aid Forum was established in 2009 with a mission to provide and promote equitable access to justice for indigent and vulnerable persons in Rwanda. Past support allowed the grantee to increase its reach in providing justice services, undertake legal education and awareness, build the capacity of community paralegals and publish research on access to justice and legal empowerment. In addition to providing justice services, continued support to the Legal Aid Forum will allow it to standardize the curriculum of paralegals, conduct paralegal trainings and coordinate the work paralegals in Rwanda.
