Women’s Legal Aid Centre

Established in 1994, Women’s Legal Aid Centre – Tanzania (WLAC) is a non-governmental organisation that provides legal aid services and human rights education to disadvantaged women and children, as well as advocating for an end to all forms of gender-based violence. Its mission is to promote access to justice and advocate for gender-responsive policies for women and children. It does this through the provision of legal and paralegal support, mobile legal aid clinics and a legal hotline. WLAC also conducts broader advocacy and awareness-raising through media campaigns, community training and education, and lobbies for changes in policies and laws on violence against women and women’s rights more broadly.
