Pro Bono means ‘For the good of the people’. In this case, we are going to look at firms that offer help to the general public who can’t afford a lawyer. This includes the underserved populations and the marginalized communities.
While there are a number of private firms that offer Pro Bono services, they are only available for a very short time hence not serving the Kenyans in need. Also, note that most pro-bono services are offered by NGOs that are still not accessible to those far away from large towns and cities.
