Project Young Women paralegals Funded by The Pollination Project (TPP) comes to an end.
Now that The project which initially was funded by The Pollination Project through Brighton Kalinga has come to an end. The trained young women paralegals have been doing a good job of raising community’s awareness on women’s land rights to acquire, use and own land in Nyololo Njiapanda, Lwing’ulo and Nyololo Shuleni villages. In our next move we will be focusing on empowering the Village and Ward land committees with knowledge and skills thus enable them make informed decisions on land related conflicts in their areas. Furthermore we intend to conduct a phase II training to the CHIDA young women Paralegals in order to improve their knowledge and skills on women fundamental rights, legal issues and how to file/make referrals etc.
Based on the incredible achievements made by the project concerning land rights for women in the project area and the recommendations by Mr. Kalinga who initiated and recruited the group under the sponsorship of #The Pollination Project (#TPP) as well as the resolutions of CHIDA’s leadership (the new care-taker of the group), the project activities will be scaled up to cover the neighboring communities/wards. The purpose of the scale-up is to expand the coverage to include the neighboring wards. Once these neighboring communities have acquired the knowledge and awareness on women’s land ownership right, they will have attained enough potential to enable them safeguard the women’s rights to acquire and own land through inheritance, purchase or any other legal means as well as to dispose/sale or use as collateral.
