How Justice Defenders is Using Education to Defend the Defenceless | Milly Kakungulu & Hannah Ahamedi

Season 1 | Episode 14
1h 10m | Apr 29, 2022

In this episode, my co-host Hannah Ahamedi and I chatted with Milly Kakungulu, the Education Department Lead at Justice Defenders Uganda. Through our discussion, we learned more about how the Justice Defenders (formerly known as the African Prisons Project) are defending the defenceless by educating prisoners on how to provide legal services for themselves and others. 

In this episode, you'll learn about:

  • the importance of a people-centred approach to justice,
  • the different challenges that prisoners face with getting access to justice in the current legal system,  
  • the Justice Defenders model (education, training, practice) and the various opportunities that Justice Defenders provides participants,
  • how prisoners have leveraged the education Justice Defenders' has provided them to transform their own lives and influence policies that improve justice within their communities at various government levels,
  • the Reach Alliance (@reachallianceto ) and how our research project inspired Hannah and I to create this episode,
  • and much more!
