In 2013 we intensified our efforts with Advice Offices through the introduction of training the trainer workshops. These workshop are aimed at paralegals wishing to improve their facilitation skills and conducting more workshops in their respective communities.
RULAC introduced ‘facilitators’ training for paralegals because of widespread ignorance by rural communities of their legal and human rights and a tendency towards passivity or violent behaviour towards abuses. Paralegals, who are normally the first point of reference for aggrieved rural communities, should benefit greatly in training empowering them to facilitate community workshops focussed on participation and critical thinking.
