YWCA Bunda branch opened a Kituo cha Wasaidizi wa Kisheria ‘Centre for Legal Assistance’ in the last week of October 2013. The Centre will be operated by YWCA volunteers and be an information source for the community on the laws surrounding marriage, violence, the rights of women and children, and land.

The opening coincided with the end of a paralegal training for 30 YWCA members in Bunda Mara held from the 21st-25th of October. Thank you Women's Legal Aid Centre (WLAC) for your support in facilitating the training and for the resources that the organization provided to the Centre.

This initiative is a component of our Tamar Campaign: a coordinated prevention and support response to Gender Based Violence in Tanzania. The Tamar Campaign is funded through Norwegian Church Aid
