In East Africa, basic legal rights are bought and not accessible for all. Many people languish in prison for years, unaware of the charge and never tried, children live on the streets because their fathers have left and provide no support, widows are forced into extreme poverty because their husband's family have seized their homes. The laws exist to protect the poor and vulnerable but are often not followed.
CLEAR will provide: - legal education workshops within prisons, advising prisoners (pre-trial) of the court process, their rights and responsibilities; - legal education workshops within communities on issues including child rights, inheritance and family; - legal representation (including pre-trial detention, child maintenance and land issues) A grass-roots organisation, CLEAR recruits local lawyers, and last year helped over 105,000 people.
