“Through relevant and innovative programs we promote public accountability on human rights protection”
AJISO provides legal aid on a daily basis to people with various issues such as land disputes, probate, marriage, child maintenance, labor, and Gender-Based Violence. We also work closely with paralegals in providing Legal aid services in Rombo District
Three years ago we had a project to enhance Paralegal practice to social justice in Rombo district. Through the project paralegals groups were formed in five divisions within Rombo which includes Mkuu, Mengwe, Mashati, Usseri and Tarakea. Paralegals were chosen from each village ensuring representation of the same. Paralegals got training throughout the project period on various laws and how to offer services to the community.
The paralegals have been working with the community closer through the provision of Legal Aid services resulting in the identification of various problems such as land issues, marriage, children maintenance, probate, Gender-Based Violence, rape, and labor issues. Paralegal involvement has contributed to solving the cases among the community members amicably hence good relationships are maintained. Also, the number of court cases has decreased due to the Paralegal’s work
