We are thankful to God that in December 2019, through your generosity, we raised more than £20,000 to celebrate 20 years of CLEAR, which will enable us to:
- Set up a seed fund to resource fledgling groups to develop, including Burundi;
- Sow a culture of justice across Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda as we equip our existing partners;
- Grow disciples of Jesus, empowering Christian lawyers to deepen their understanding of God and witness to their communities.
Voice for the Voiceless
Voice for the Voiceless are a group of Christian lawyers in Burundi, one of the poorest countries in the world. They have been running adhoc community education sessions through local churches and for the past year have had access to a prison, visiting remandees to offer legal education and advice on their cases. They have already begun to see the impact of their involvement, with church leaders and among prisoners. But there is so much more that could be done.
Please help us to continue to strengthen our CLEAR partners - including Voice for Voiceless - in their faith, witness and access to justice provision, and to equip and empower fledgling Christian lawyer fellowships to engage with issues of justice within their communities in the coming years.
