Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 1994
This description of Ben Lekalakala's work was prepared when Ben Lekalakala was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1994.
Bernert Lekalakala and Ashwell Zwane (South Africa 1996) are establishing a model community-based legal center that will provide residents of Alexandra township with comprehensive legal services, including rights education, consumer and family law advice, conflict mediation, and litigation. The Center will also serve as a means for black law graduates to perform their articles, and thus qualify as registered attorneys.
