NAWL envisions a South Sudan where the rights of women, girls, children and other vulnerable groups are protected, respected and the rule of law upheld as the basis of good governance, democracy, access to justice and peaceful co-existence.

NAWL envisions a South Sudan where the rights of women, girls, children and other vulnerable groups are protected, respected and the rule of law upheld as the basis of good governance, democracy, access to justice and peaceful co-existence. Our mission is to provide pro bono legal services to women, girls, children and other vulnerable groups as well as to create awareness at all levels on women’s and children’s rights, principles of human rights and international instruments to which South Sudan is a party. NAWL seeks to advocate legal reforms to conform to international law and principles while engaging stakeholders, governments and communities in peacebuilding and promotion of transitional justice.

Although a nascent organization, NAWL has set forth ambitiously in the thematic areas of rule of law, access to justice, transitional justice, and governance. Wealth of experience of members in legal awareness, supporting women’s rights in advocacy (legal aid) and protection is a strong predictor of NAWL’s success.

NAWL’s activities fall into the following categories: pro bono legal services; legal awareness; equity and equality; policy research and reform seeking to address legal protection; and monitoring and evaluation with regards to oversight on duty-bears.  Other activities include peacebuilding, advocacy and promotion of girl-child education, and cultural reforms to tolerate legislations that empower women.
