Zilipa’s touching story of a journey worthwhile

Zilipa’s touching story of a journey worthwhile

Legal aid and representation are still very difficult to access for many people in Rwanda. Zilipa walked for four hours from her house to one of Haguruka’s advocacy centres in Musanze, in the Northern Province of Rwanda. She was determined to find legal help by all means. Her husband and father of her children, had gotten a mistress whom he wanted to marry. Because of that, he wanted to take the home he lived in with Zilipa and also take their children.  This was Zilipa’s problem when she approached Haguruka. She immediately got a lawyer who was volunteering at the time. Zilipa got the legal aid and representation she needed and took her husband to court. In the end, she won both the house and custody of their children.
