Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation Partners with Nigeria Legal Aid for Pro Bono Legal Services

In a significant stride towards social justice, the Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation has partnered with Nigeria Legal Aid to provide pro bono legal services for incarcerated women and young girls who have been victims of domestic violence, rape, or have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances due to self-defense. This collaboration aims to ensure that these vulnerable individuals, often without access to legal representation, receive the support and justice they deserve.

A Landmark Success

The partnership recently celebrated a milestone with its first successful case. A 16-year-old girl, wrongly accused of stealing a phone based on her appearance alone, had been languishing in detention for months without legal representation. The Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation, under the leadership of Keran Danjan, Tessy Egonu, and lead counsel Mercy Olamide, took up her case. Their diligent efforts resulted in the charges being struck out, and the young girl was joyfully reunited with her family.

The Importance of Legal Representation

This case highlights the critical need for accessible legal representation. Many women and young girls in Nigeria are unjustly incarcerated due to systemic failures and lack of legal resources. By partnering with Nigeria Legal Aid, the Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation is working to address these injustices, providing a voice to those who have been silenced and a pathway to justice for those who have been wronged.

Beyond Legal Aid: Rehabilitation and Reintegration

Recognizing that the journey to justice does not end in the courtroom, the Foundation is committed to supporting the rehabilitation and reintegration of the women and girls they assist. The trauma experienced in prison facilities can have lasting impacts, and the Foundation seeks partnerships with rehabilitation centers to help these individuals rebuild their lives. By offering comprehensive support, including mental health services and vocational training, the Foundation aims to empower these women and girls to lead normal, productive lives post-incarceration.

A Call for Collaboration

The Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation is open to further partnerships with organizations dedicated to rehabilitation and social reintegration. Together, they can create a supportive network that addresses both the immediate legal needs and the long-term well-being of these women and girls.

Join the Movement

The Queen Entrepreneur Women’s Foundation invites individuals, organizations, and stakeholders to join in this vital work. By working together, we can ensure that justice is accessible to all, and that no woman or girl has to face the legal system alone.
