About this grant

Founded in 2006, AdvocAid is a human rights organization that provides holistic justice services to women and girls in Sierra Leone using a legal empowerment approach. Past support has allowed the grantee to provide legal services to 159 women per month, in eight towns across Sierra Leone. The grantee also represented 159 women in court and conducted 42 legal education sessions for poor and marginalized people. This grant will allow AdvocAid to continue its justice services with women under its new 2021-2025 strategy, which prioritizes access to justice.
