The Faculty of Law Legal Aid Project is funded by UNDP-Amkeni Wakenya with an objective to facilitate enhanced access to justice by the marginalized and the poor in Nakuru County and to build a sustained and structured legal aid service within Nakuru County. The project aims to address the challenge of violation of human rights for the marginalized and poor groups of people living within Nakuru County beginning with select sub counties namely, Nakuru Town West, Naivasha, Subukia, Molo, Bahati and Rongai. These groups of people have limited access to institutions providing legal services and enforcement of human rights. Their plight as vulnerable groups worsens their situation, further isolating them from equal treatment before the law. They also find mainstream channels of accessing information inaccessible, making it hard for them to know their rights or how to enforce them. There is therefore little access to information on human rights and identification or referral of human rights abuses is at its lowest.
The target groups for this project are therefore the marginalized and vulnerable people, particularly the poor, those living with HIV and Aids, women, youth and persons living with disabilities. These groups of people are often shunned in decision making in governance matters at the national and county level. They face many hurdles in accessing justice and violations of human rights among them is rampant. These challenges are compounded by the fact that most of these people are poor and can hardly meet their basic human needs. Under the circumstances, the pursuit of human rights becomes a far-fetched idea, considering their precarious position in the society.
