The Foundation for Public Interest Law and Development (FPIL&D) also known as (The Pro Bono Centre) is an organisation founded in 2019 by a group of passionate lawyers. The organization was created with the primary objective of ensuring that Africa is a society that works for all.
We use Legal Research, strategic litigation, advocacy, and legal empowerment to promote and advocate for issues of public interest law and sustainable development. We also raise informed citizens that will engage the government on laws and policies demanding accountability, good governance and development, and we help people in need of legal assistance by connecting them to volunteer lawyers willing to render pro bono legal services.
Are you looking for a meaningful way to give back to your community and make a difference in the lives of others? We invite you to become a volunteer with our organization. By joining our team of dedicated volunteers, you can play a vital role in creating positive change and shaping a better future.
