Justice Defenders is a UK-based charity and movement of defenders from all walks of life working to provide legal education, training, and practice within defenceless communities. Founded in 2007, we work across Africa where prisoners and officers train and provide legal services for themselves and others. This year, 250 of our paralegals and 50 law students will reach 100,000 people in 40 prisons. Our work helps the humans within the criminal justice system flourish. And this increased capacity promotes more equitable, just, and peaceful societies, in keeping with the UN’s 2030 SDG 16.
