About this grant

The project goal is to increase access to justice for poor and marginalized people in Rwanda. To this end, the Legal Aid Forum will continue implementing its justice services through paralegals, lawyers and its network of legal services members. The grantee will conduct trainings for paralegals, hold legal aid clinics and strengthen its technology to provide justice services. Past support has helped the grantee to reach 2,551,809 beneficiaries through legal representation in and out of court, legal education of communities and training of paralegals. 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.
