This program equips community participants (especially the poorest slum dwellers) with skills and knowledge on human rights, laws and legal procedures that are essential in human rights advocacy work.
This program entails: cases documentation, legal advice of clients on applicable laws on their cases, drafting of simple legal documents such as: affidavits, statement of defense, plaint, petitions, last statement of will and simple agreements of which majority of poorer Kenyans are unable to draft due to high rate of semi illiteracy and ignorance of the law in the slums.
Under this program, KAPLET also provides alternative dispute resolution services through mediation and referrals of various kinds of cases from the communities or villages to our networking partners for necessary legal redress or assistance. Disputes that can be settled outside court are mediated by skilled human rights defenders who are trained community paralegal workers.
KAPLET in collaboration with other local and international organizations initiated a right to health and health care campaign in Kenya through right based approach to social, economic, political and other determinants of ill health & comprehensive healthcare in Kenya.
We believe that EVERYONE deserves to have access to a justice that dignifies, honours and empowers them first and foremost.
