KITUO TRAINS YOUTH CHAMPIONS IN MAGARINI, KILIFI COUNTY
Kituo Cha Sheria recognizes the duty of informed citizenry in safeguarding human rights in Kenya. Kituo Cha Sheria’s Coast Region office-Mombasa has been training 30 Youth Champions in Magarini Sub County, Kilifi County to take the battle of protecting and safeguarding human rights in Kilifi. The content of the training covered basic legal knowledge and strategies for advocacy by the Youths. This will go a long way to inform vigilance and community participation in governance and to elevate awareness in the region. The Youths were largely from Activists, Malindi Rights Forum, Sauti Ya Wanawake and Bunge la Wananchi.
In pursuit of access to justice for the underprivileged, Kituo Cha Sheria officers and volunteer advocates also held FREE legal aid clinics in Sogorosa, Magarini Sub County on 24th February 2019. The key challenge presented during the clinics among the community was land conflicts. Community members from the area were able to access services of advocates from Kituo and Volunteer Advocates working with the organization. While other community members were advised on their legal questions, other matters were taken up for further legal pursuit in court and relevant fora.
