Lawyers 4 Farmers

GetLawyers 4 Farmers (L4F) is a not for profit organization established in Kampala, Uganda. We ease the access of farmers to basic legal information and services. We deliver instant legal information through an SMS based platform and offer mirco-legal insurance to farmer groups which lowers their cost of travel to access legal information and increases their knowledge of their rights.
