About this grant

The Legal Aid Forum’s mission is to promote and support access to justice for all vulnerable groups of people in Rwanda. To this end, the grantee uses knowledge building, legal empowerment, human rights promotion, and institutional development as its core approaches. This grant will assist the grantee to strengthen its access to justice program through paralegal interventions, and reach more vulnerable people in all five provinces of Rwanda. The Legal Aid Forum was established in 2006 as a membership-based network of 38 national and international nongovernmental organizations, professional bodies, university legal aid clinics, and faith-based initiatives that support and/or provide legal aid services to people living in Rwanda.
