What we do
Ndifuna Ukwazi (NU) is a group of activists and lawyers providing strategic legal services, research capacity and training opportunities to social movements and community based organisations in joint campaigns.
We are driven by a vision of advancing the constitutional rights to life, dignity, equality, freedom and safety for all people, but especially those of poor and working class people living in informal settlements.
Our values are based on a belief in the need for justice and equality for poor and working class people, as well as respect for and promotion of democracy, the rule of law and our constitutional rights. We value openness, transparency and accountability as well as the power of participation and democratic deliberation.
Our work is built around three core strategies: evidence based campaigns, use of the law, strengthening the capacity of social movements to organise, mobilise and participate.
