PPL Community Support is a division of Pre-Paid Legal Services.
Pre-Paid Legal Services works towards Legal Empowerment for all people, especially to those within our communities who are less fortunate and are unable to afford Access to Justice and Rule of Law.
Pre-Paid Legal supports the Legal Empowerment of the poor and believes in Making the Law work for Everyone.
Legal Empowerment is broader than legal aid; it goes beyond individual disputes to address issues at a community level. Legal Empowerment not only involves educating vulnerable groups about legal rights and processes for accessing legal and administrative remedies. Legal Empowerment is about giving those who are most vulnerable the opportunity, knowledge, skill and support to advance their lives and their interests.
Legal Empowerment is not just about the use of the law, it is also about community organising and livelihood development. It is about the power of relationships and the ability and strengths of these relationships to provide decisions and process that may affect all our lives for the better and providing the right framework, legal tools, legal processes and services to adequately provide empowerment to all.

Pre-Paid Legal supports and endorses the Commission on Legal Empowerment of the poor and the objective it strives to achieve.
