STRENGTHENING JUSTICE DELIVERY
The LRF works with authorities and institutions to strengthen the justice system, identifying barriers to accessing justice and addressing these through building the capacities of officials responsible for the administration and delivery of justice. Our programmes have also improved the delivery of justice in rural and marginalized areas, both through building the capacity of traditional leaders across the country on professional court processes and also individuals by making them aware of how the customary law courts function and their rights when they appear before the court.
The following services are offered by LRF:
Traditional Leaders Training
Training with the police and prison officers
LRF also trains police officers from the Victim Friendly Unit on the essential elements of sexual offences, gender-based violence, child rights and child sexual abuse, child marriages, the rights of accused persons as provided in the Constitution and the management and preparation of dockets.
This training will help to ensure that these police officers are better equipped to handle GBV cases, ensuring that justice prevails for survivors.
