Problem

Based on the research we did, one lawyers in Tanzania serves 9055 Tanzanians. Majority of these lawyers are found in urban areas, this becomes a challenge to the Tanzanians living in the rural areas as when they need to access legal education or services they have to travel a long distance and incur exorbitant costs to get them. That is why we developed & introduced Sheria Kiganjani.
