About Us

The Children’s Legal Defense Center (CLDC) is a nonprofit legal assistance organization in Hargeisa, Somaliland that defends wrongfully and unjustly imprisoned children. We take the written law and make its protections a reality by providing legal assistance and criminal defense to imprisoned children and their families.

We assist our clients and their families to know the law, how it applies to their situation, and work with them to use it in their cases. This is not just about teaching people their rights. It is about working alongside those who society marginalizes and disfavors, like children accused of crimes, to ensure they receive the protection of the law.
