West Africa Paralegal Service Providers Survey
The Isa Wali Empowerment Initiative, Justice & Empowerment Initiatives, and NAMATI, are together carrying out a mapping of various legal empowerment initiatives in West Africa with a primary focus on organizations that use the skills and expertise of community based paralegals to promote access to justice and carry out advocacy on behalf of communities. The main objective of the mapping is to begin a regional conversation on legal empowerment and how various actors in West Africa can come together around common challenges and collective aspirations in making access to justice a reality for all.

The below survey will take approximately 10 minutes to fill. Thank you in advance for your participation!
