Nyonga Womens Shelter
Legal Aid Service Provision
This section helps women with legal advice regarding their current issues in case they want to seek redress or justice; provide legal aid services and legislative sensitizations through organizing community-based mass educations, media and documenting and summarizing relevant Ugandan legislation in the media to create awareness about rights, obligations and implications for the general public.
Time with Police
In order to help the overwhelming numbers that flood the already understaffed police, the legal aid team dedicates time every two days in a week to support the police and other stakeholders through organizing alternative resolution meetings and providing advise on causes of actions.
We offer pro-bono services to vulnerable women and low-income women and children in form of court representation in both civil and criminal cases, Alternative Dispute Resolution and rehabilitations.
