VAI Membership Benefits

VAI Membership Benefits

Membership in VAI gives members access to:

1. Legal representation

2. An individualised Memorandum of Understanding with VAI, which will be different based on the justice objectives of each organisation. You tell us what your priorities are in terms of increasing access to justice for your members, and we will provide you with tailored assistance in meeting those priorities.

3. Access to the resources of the Secretariat, which will include trainings, mentoring packages, advocacy support, and the possibility of jointly applying for funding (see below).

4. One elected representative will join VAI’s Advisory Committee, which will provide the Board with advice on how the organisation should be run.

The type of resources available to members can grow and change based on the strategic vision of the organisation. VAI exists to reflect to the actual needs of its members. Currently, the resources available are focused on organisational development and legal and advocacy resources, as these are the identified needs of the groups currently working with VAI.
