Kituo Cha Sheria Celebrates 45th Anniversary
Kituo cha Sheria turned 45 on 9th July, 2018. This makes it the oldest legal aid institution in the Republic, boasting a nationwide presence and a significant contribution to the development of law. It’s a remarkable status few could have predicted; not least the five young law students, who first carried its vision.
Kituo Cha Sheria’s vision is towards a society of equity and justice for all. Similarly, the mission of the organisation is to empower the poor and marginalized people to effectively access justice and enjoy their peoples and human rights in Kenya through advocacy, networking, lobbying, legal aid education and representation, research and innovation.
Kituo Cha Sheria staff came together at the Head Office Gardens and the Coast Regional office-Mombasa to mark the occasion on Thursday, 2nd August, 2018. Staff were joined by community paralegals and friends of Kituo including members of the public who attended a Free Legal Aid Clinic on the day. The day’s event was conducted in celebration of Kituo at 45 and to join in with the community we serve as we continue to provide legal empowerment to the poor and marginalized.
