RSPN and Foundations to Promote Open Society (FPOS) collaborated for a legal empowerment project titled “Strengthening Legal Empowerment at RSPs: Capacity Building of Paralegals”. In its pilot phase this project was implemented in eight union councils of districts’ Bahawalpur and Rajanpur from October 2015 to April 2017 through the National Rural Support Programmes (NRSP). The project focused on building capacity of the staff of the Rural Support Programmes (RSPs) and community members including women and men to work as paralegals in rural communities.
