Amount awarded: 
UGX 1,000,000,074
Duration: 
March, 2021 to December, 2022

This sub-project seeks to contribute to sustainable access to justice by working with and strengthening the capacity of rural vulnerable communities and justice actors to seek and claim adequate living rights using the 2019 Human Rights (Enforcement) Act (HREA) in the three (3) districts of Buyende, Kiboga and Kyaknwanzi in Uganda. By applying the principles of participation, accountability, non-discrimination and equality, the Center for Food and Adequate Living Rights (CEFROHT) is building the capacity of vulnerable people and duty bearers to use the 2019 HREA to claim adequate living rights. CEFROHT is also strengthening local justice structures and linkages between informal and formal justice actors and the vulnerable, by establishing and empowering Community Justice Groups, including through constructive community dialogues, and by delivering local government human rights-based sensitization workshops. Finally, CEFROHT is providing pro bono legal services to the vulnerable facing adequate living rights violations.
