About IDEALS Inc.
The Initiatives for Dialogue and Empowerment through Alternative Legal Services (IDEALS) is a local non-profit, non-stock legal focused advocacy and service institution. They help address the legal and technical needs of the marginalized, disempowered, and vulnerable groups particularly farmers, persons and communities affected by disasters, and victims of human rights violations.
They envision a Philippine society with an empowered citizenry sustained by participatory and accountable governance, equitable enjoyment of resources and opportunities, and accessible justice. We aim to empower the marginalized sectors, and with them, work for a policy and legal environment oriented towards the realization of their rights and participation in governance.
From their establishment in 2005 to the present, they have implemented numerous projects that address the evolving and pressing needs of the marginalized. Here are their four main programs: Economic Rights, Human Rights, Rights in Emergencies and Development Consulting.See more
