About this grant
The Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace of the Archdiocese of Lilongwe was founded in 1992 with the primary objective of consolidating democratic and human rights gains. The grantee has since become a key stakeholder in ensuring that Malawians enjoy their rights and access justice. Past project support allowed the grantee to scale its access to justice work, through providing justice services to vulnerable groups in the Nkhotakota region of Malawi. This grant will assist the grantee to provide civil justice services and conduct oversight over the judicial system in Malawi to ensure that it is just and fair.
