This sub-project sought 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) established three (3) Community Advocacy Groups (CAGs) to support vulnerable persons to claim adequate living rights and obligations. Furthermore, CEFROHT conducted a series of capacity development activities on access to justice, human rights entitlements and responsibilities and the use of HREA to members of the CAGs and the local communities. In collaboration with the Judicial Training Institute, CEFROHT also delivered training on how to provide redress to human rights violations, especially adequate living rights, to judicial officers and court appointed mediators. Finally, CEFROHT provided pro bono legal services to the vulnerable facing living rights violations.
