Know your legal rights.
Know your legal rights project, emerged from the need of the community to understand Contracts Law, particularly addressing contracts with utility service providers; we organised a series of workshops where we explained the process of making claims when conflicts arise with utility service providers. We have also covered topics in consumer law rights.
Furthermore we also described the causes and consequences of eviction, and the rights and obligations of tenants.
