Brief Description

The FIDA has made "non-literate women literate in modern law" through workshops, translations and free legal services in an effort toward gender balancing and advocacy for children. Born from the UN's Women's Decade, FIDA, through attorney volunteers teaches women their rights and obligations under the law and translates laws from legalese into everyday language and then into local languages. FIDA also trains community-level paralegals.
