Legal Information and capacity development on land rights

 

The Legal Awareness Programme (LAP) of Women in Law & Development in Africa (WILDAF) Ghana aims at providing women with sustainable legal education, rights awareness and legal counselling services within the various communities in the Western and Volta regions. The LAP includes training paralegals to extend its coverage (http://www.wildafghana.org/)

The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) Ghana supports women’s legal literacy through workshops, translations and free legal services. Every year FIDA organises Legal Aid Clinics in the different regions of the country where free legal advice, arbitration and counselling to representation in court are available to persons who cannot afford the services of a lawyer (http://www.h-net.org/~deitutu/fida/index.html)
