We Transform Your Vision through access to justice
What we do?
The Ugandan Association of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Uganda provides legal aid services across the country through a strategic network of over 11 offices. These offices, led by a national-level office in Kampala, are supported by lawyers, FIDA-U members, Community Legal Volunteers and local authorities. We have a particular focus on assisting socially and economically disadvantaged women and children. We assist with legal problems through providing various services including legal advice, alternative dispute resolution; providing duty counsel at family courts FIDA-U has long-standing relationships with communities across Uganda in order to effectively serve and represent vulnerable women and children.
FIDA-U also ensures holistic empowerment of vulnerable women through promoting the social and economic rights of women. Social and economic empowerment complements legal aid service delivery by addressing causes of vulnerability amongst women. We understand that when women have access to economic resources and are better informed about their rights, they are more holistically empowered.
