We invite you to JOIN BLAST in its Campaign for Access to Justice and Empowerment of the Marginalized and Poor.
To date, BLAST has litigated in about 68,000 cases and 28,000 mediations, with about 92% of its clients being women. Thanks to its lawyers’ invaluable services, BLAST has recovered approximately USD668, 000/ € 543,000 in 2011 alone for clients through mediation and litigation.
For every US dollar paid to a staff lawyer, they are able to recover approximately USD 8 for the benefit of clients.
BLAST regularly campaigns on law reforms and conducts advocacy for institutional reform. Additionally, BLAST has undertaken 90 Public Interest Litigation cases, raised rights awareness among women, and marginalized groups (workers, slum dwellers, minorities, and people with disabilities), and undertaken capacity building for justice sector actors.
Following the global recession, BLAST is faced with a potential series of cuts in crucial support and funding for our work. Any shortfall in funds may force us to close down our district offices, leaving women, men and children without minimal legal resource, or means to claim remedies for their security and safety. The following amounts will run different sectors every year:
• USD 30,900/ € 25,000 will keep a district office operating for one year.
• USD 2,300/ € 1,900 will support a staff lawyer for one year.
• USD 166/ € 135 will support a staff lawyer for one month.
