“ You can't create a sustainable peace & justice systems by focusing your solutions only on the contemporary issues-we need to think beyond now and design solutions with the youth in mind!__Denis OGWANG(Director) ”
“It's not only important but it's also necessary for the youth to have the opportunity to be actively involved in building peace &justice systems of their nations. To achieve Tomorrow's Justice, the foundation of Justice must be bulit today! To achieve justice in the world, we need to prepare the young people for justice today and at Justice Connect, we pledge to work towards building peace & justice not only for now but for the future too!”
“Building ICT solutions that can give opportunities for the youth to champion justice movements for the communities is a very great opportunity for the youth to show their relevance in the society.Freelancing with Justice Connect gives me the joy and the pride of giving back to my community which is something I couldn't have easily done single-handedly.Thanks for the opportunities, Justice Connect.”
“Understanding how the youth can be integrated into building our peace and justice systems is a prer -requsite for sustainability of these systems. If the justice system must live beyond today, we need to put the youth at the centre-stage of these systems.It's a great opportunity to be named as an advisor to this innovative peace & justice organisation--Justice Connect.”
We beleive that there are so many solutions that can be developed but for us to design the solutions, we need to understand the existing gaps and develop strategies that can help adress those gaps. At Justice Connect, we have a well built reseach centre where innovations are researched, developed, tested and launched for the greater good of the community.
Normally private law firms in Uganda charge very high prices in exchange for legal consulatations services. We beleieve that so many people miss justice simply because they can't afford these legal fees and we want to change that! At Justice Connect, we offer free or very affordable legal consultations. Our probono lawyers offer legal consulatations for as low as $10 and below. We also have youth-based probono legal freelancing services where young and talented legal officers are matched to specific community needs.
"Ignorance of the law is no defense":-But in all fairness, it should be a defense in Uganda! just thinking aloud...
We have realized that there's been a very big gap in communicating the content of the laws/policies of our nation to both literate and illiterate communities. The constitution is written in a way that it's hard to understand by an ordinary citizen. Every citizen must understand the laws that govern the society but unfortunately, not so much has been done in achieving this, the Uganda Police's Community Polishing Program is trying but unfortunately, the community seems to have lost confidence in the police explaining these laws to the them reasons being the police always trying to focus only on law enforcement.
At Justice Connect, we want to come out independently and without bias to create localized visual communication tools to help the communities understand the laws of the country. We want to target specific groups and ensure that we use the right communication strategy to explain the legal content to them.
Times have changed and so our approaches must follow. At Justice Connect, we have realized that another approach to ensuring jsutice in the country is through ICT innovations. We design highly innovative community-focused ICT Innovations all geared towards making justice achieveable and affordable even by the poor communities in the country.
