The HiiL Justice Accelerator played a critical role in this journey, identifying and supporting one of Barefoot Law’s first innovative products, when the mSMEGararage won the Innovating Justice Awards in 2015. This proved to be a catalyst of success, after which the organisation grew and was awarded the presteigious King Baudouin African Development Prize in 2017.
- “It is going to be a huge catalyst to the organisation’s growth.“
- “Barefoot law is going to do what it has been doing better and more efficiently.”
- “We will have more direction, focus and more unified voice especially because of the BHAG. We have a great goal to aspire towards. Our structure and the functions of each team member will improve. The training has also helped us figure out the cracks we need to fill out in order for us to make access to justice and the law readily available to 50 million people across Africa by 2030.”
