As human rights NGO dedicated to promoting social justice in Ethiopia, OSJE pursued diverse activities contributing to the promotion and the enjoyment of human rights. The Project “Improving Access to Judicial and Administrative Services in Rural Ethiopia "directly falls under that category. This project took the form of giving a paralegals' training in Kamashi Woreda, Benishangul-Gumuz Regional State and was undertaken with a financial support from Initiative Africa and in collaboration with Action Aid Ethiopia Kamashi CCDP.
Under this project OSJE had developed a tailor made training manual and delivered a 15 days training to individuals selected from the community leaders, students, and teachers. A workshop aimed at creating awareness on the importance of paralegals in addressing access to justice problems and setting a ground for forging a smooth relationship between judicial and law enforcement organs and, paralegals was conducted in Assosa. As one of the activities of the project a booklet on the contribution of paralegals in addressing the problem of access to justice was also published and distributed.
