Dufatanye kubaka ubutabera
While there is evident progress in access to justice in Rwanda, further improvements are needed, in particularly reaching the indigent and most vulnerable members of the community. These include; GBV survivors, persons with disabilities and indigent persons. It is against this background that “Dufatanye Kubaka Ubutabera” is being implemented. As the literal translation is ‘Working together to strengthen access to justice’, to improve citizens’ knowledge of their rights and expand access to and improvement of quality of legal services through public defenders, private lawyers, and legal aid services, particularly for vulnerable communities, including women, youth and early representation of individuals charged with crimes.
Through this project, we aim to increase access to justice.
