Barrister Nchunu's Story

We do a lot of public-interest environmental litigation on behalf of ordinary people as well as communities. These are those who otherwise will be denied justice either because they lack knowledge or simply can't bear the costs involved. We also carry out a lot of education to empower women to be able to participate in decision making in their communities- Barr Nchunu Justice Sama, CEO FEDEV. Find out more about FEDEV in this video
