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. The Center for Food and 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.
