"Belgian Lawyers for Africa – It's Legal to Care!" is a Belgian non-profit organization established in 2019 by business lawyers Younes Sebbarh, Gilles Leyssen and Camille Degrave.
Several years ago, the founders embarked on a journey to Malawi, one of Africa's poorest countries, to work in an orphanage. It was during this volunteering experience that they promised to return to develop sustainable projects as a solution to severe problems. "Belgian Lawyers for Africa – It’s Legal to Care!" is their first step in delivering on this promise.
With more than 1 million orphans, 6.3 million individuals without safe drinking water, and an extremely low life expectancy, Zambia is the next country where the three lawyers wish to make a difference. Next to these frightening figures, Zambia was recently hit by extreme drought, destroying most of the farmers' crops, and resulting in an even bigger struggle to survive.
Inch by inch, "Belgian Lawyers for Africa – It's Legal to Care!" wishes to provide sustainable solutions by installing boreholes and developing agricultural programs in the poorest areas of Africa.
During two months, our non-profit organization will organize an "accelerated bookbuilding", intensively gathering funds for our community project in Zambia. After the successful fundraise, Younes, Gilles and Camille will travel to Africa to ensure the installment and coordination of the borehole and agricultural programs.
We strongly believe that our organization can positively impact the lives of these people, but only with your support!
