Welcome To Kituo Cha Sheria

Kituo Cha Sheria (KITUO) is a human rights non-governmental organization. It was founded on 9th July 1973 as Kituo cha Mashauri by advocates who were committed to helping the disadvantaged and poor people who could not afford the cost of legal services. It is the first legal aid Centre established in Kenya. In 1989, the name was changed to Kituo Cha Sheria, Legal Advice Centre, now “The Centre for Legal empowerment,” and a secretariat established with full time staff. KITUO is largely supported by development partners. The organization nonetheless gets support across the country from Volunteer advocates in terms of their professional services. KITUO’s services are provided to the poor and marginalized through various strategies, which include but not limited to provision of legal advice, legal representation, litigation, and community mobilization and organization. KITUO’s headquarters is in Nairobi but has a branch office in Jogoo Road and a regional office in Mombasa.
