NAWL’s present portfolio encompasses the following:
• Pro bono legal services: NAWL believes in free delivery of justice to women, girls and children who fall victims of their rights violation through representation before the courts of law and other law enforcement agencies such as the police, prisons and customary courts. Training of paralegals pulled from all communities on the rule of law, access to justice, human rights, international legal instruments and other national laws is a necessity to achieve this objective.
• Peace building: to promote Peace, unity and stability of all the people of South Sudan;
• Awareness raising: To sensitize the communities about the diversity of laws –domestic, regional and international – without discrimination.
• Equity and Equality: To fight inequality of employment by promoting the principle of ‘equal pay equal worth’, constitutional provision on nondiscrimination in employment based on gender, and ensure that women duly appreciate the 25% affirmative action in addition to their rightful share of the job market.
• Policy Reform: To lobby policy-makers and implementers to ensure quality and affordable access to justice, provision of healthcare and education. This is done through public debates, essay competitions, dialogue and conferences
• Negative Tradition and Customs: To advocate for eradication of negative customs and traditions that undermine the dignity of women and girls, including early and forced marriages, widow inheritance and property rights to women and girls.
• Child Protection: Creation and promotion of psychosocial therapy opportunities for vulnerable children and those affected by the conflict, advocacy for child rights protection and safe place for children.
• Basic Education: Advocacy and promotion of access to basic education for the most disadvantaged children and girls.
• Policy Research: Conduct of periodic research in key thematic areas to respond to the policy and development needs of women and children. The research agenda seeks to inform decision-making, policies, programme development, institutional development, capacity building/ strengthening and advocacy strategies at all levels.
• Monitoring and Evaluation: Provide technical expertise in monitoring and evaluation, including impact evaluation to clients of sexual and gender-based violence. This is an important aspect of measuring results and gauging effectiveness of interventions and employ advisors or experts and other staff for all or any of the objects of the organization.
