Historical Background

Action for Justice in Society (AJISO) is a legal aid  provision organization that was established in 1998 with the aim of promoting women and children rights and access to justice in the society. It empowers women and children through access to justice, organizing public awareness raising meetings about human rights, legal education and Gender based violence (GBV).

AJISO also trains paralegals, the ward protection com- mittees and child rights clubs so as to eliminate all forms of violence in the society. After realizing that poverty is a leading cause of GBV, AJISO embarked on empowering women economically by mobilizing them into Village Community Banks (VICOBA) Groups where they receive entrepreneurship trainings and other demand driven

“We just want to create legal and human rights awareness among the public and in particular the underprivileged section of society through legal and civic education, advocacy linked with legal aid provision, research and human rights monitoring.”
