Legal Interventions

We live in a society where there’s a high rise of social injustice, police brutality, & gender inequality, & a lot of citizens and communities whose rights are either violated, or unfairly judged, lack the resources to seek legal redress. 

As a result, our legal department tirelessly represents these persons and supports their legal needs – to achieve judgment and peace in their homes and communities.

Our legal interventions revolve around cases on housing, gender, land, health,  etc, and include:
