Community-based paralegals in Kengtung: Empowering communities through legal support and awareness
Paralegals in Kengtung, one of the project area of Braveheart, are working alongside both active clients and volunteers, with a focus to access legal identity and justice issues. Paralegals are working with active clients with issues related to civil documents, gathering supporting documents, and promote community awareness on relevant topics. This includes conducting home visits to identify potential clients, encouraging them to start the application process, and accompanying them to various departments if needed. They also provide access to information on the importance of civil documents and the consequences of lacking them, as well as education on relevant topics.
