LEGAL EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN USING INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY - LEWUTI
Due to several contributory factors, most Ugandans – especially women, have very limited access to legal services, particularly in rural areas. For instance, most local leaders (cultural and political) have a wrong belief that women cannot own land although the law says otherwise. As a result, their rights are infringed upon, they have limited recourse for injustice and therefore do not enjoy the full potential of rights and duties they are entitled to.
The project mobilizes digital solutions to overcome physical and financial barriers to reach legal support while addressing the structural gender inequalities that prevents women from accessing justice
