Enhancing access to legal services

Area of Operation

DEVLINK is mandated to work countrywide. However, our major operations concentrates in the western region of Kenya including the major part of the fishing community.

Enhancing access to legal services

The organization has continued advocating for the removal of barriers that impede or significantly slow down access to legal support by involving all relevant stakeholders including law enforcement officers and the judiciary to strengthen the administration of justice for women whose rights are violated in the community.

DEVLINKs  effective referral and linkage system has seen a closer collaboration with the law enforcement officers and the  District Children department thus  resulting to improved child-friendly legal procedures that rapidly connect abused children to protective services.  This has resulted in an increase  in the number of cases of  various forms of violence against children  reported to relevant authorities to access justice. 

 

The project  has been an eye opener in Suba District as several cases of violence and abuse of children  can for  the first time reach  sentencing level and to ensure that  the cases  referred to court are accorded the seriousness they deserve.
