Our drive to promote community development has been inspired by the untapped resources of Diaspora Direct Investment (DDI1) and Domestic Direct Investment (DDI2). Many people migrates from developing countries to developed countries in search of better lives and living standards and to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will enable them to give back. However, most of these dreams die along the way and often many migrant communities often find themselves in a vicious circle of poverty which they then pass on to their children and future generations.
CAD-HR believes that if these communities work together, not only will they realise their dreams and contribute immensely to the growth and development of the economies of their newly found countries, but will also establish and strengthen trade links and relationships between their countries of residence and their native countries.
Our aim therefore is to help organise and develop these communities by encouraging them to set up co-operative businesses that will enable them in the med-term to engage in large scale enterprises and connect with their counterparts in their respective homelands.
Access to Justice is one of the most important pillars of the Rule of Law. Without it, people will be unable to have their voices heard, exercise their rights, challenge discrimination or hold decision-makers accountable. According to Lord Bingham, “denial of legal protection to the poor litigant who cannot afford to pay is [an] enemy of the rule of law.” (The Rule of Law, Allen Lane, London, 2010, page 88). In the UK lack of legal aid in too many areas of law means that poor litigants who makes up the majority of the population have been denied legal protection.
CAD-HR notes that there seems to be a mismatch within the legal service sector. On one hand there is a growing number of qualified legal practitioners who are working in areas that are not related to their qualifications simply because reputable law firms or barrister chambers cannot offer them the opportunity to practice. On the other hand, there are millions of poor people or struggling families out there who have legal problems but don't have enough money to pay the expensive legal fees charged by these reputable law firms and barrister chambers and do not have access to legal aid either.
CAD-HR aim to resolve this situation by matching these poor legal service users with these trained and qualified legal practitioners through our Easy Access to Justice Scheme.
Our Mission is to provide suitable, appropriate and timely solutions to the economic, social and legal problems of the communities that wee work with.
