Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to give voice and justice to all prison inmates who do not have the privilege of being represented in court for fair hearing and make sure that their cases are handled according to law.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to see a world where no one is thrown behind bars without being heard, a world where no one is thrown behind bars because the rich and mighty have intimidated him/her, a world where the poor can access legal representation at no cost thereby giving them hope and sense of belonging.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by all but most especially the poor and the weak in the society. Prison inmates who are there because no one could speak for them.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Establish a group with the goal of giving free legal services.
Form coalition with other interest groups to come up with a plan and policy that will make imprisonment without fair hearing a criminal offence.
Put pressure on the government to sign the policy into law.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
It's very simple. With our public awareness and sensitization, in addition to our meeting with the influencers to pressurize the legislature to sign it into law. Once that is done, we have achieved our goal and now be strong for the implementation.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
