Help Renuka and Yasmeen win IBJ’s $5,000 JusticeMakers Fellowship

Our very own Renuka Balasubramaniam and Dato’ Yasmeen Shariff have submitted proposals to get a small grant for a project to increase access to justice for some of the most deserving in Malaysia.

Renuka’s proposal aims to increase legal aid to refugees, whilst Yasmeen’s aims to improve the system of juvenile justice.

Aside from the judge’s prizes, there is also a mechanism whereby there is a People’s Choice award. All it takes is a about 5 minutes – just follow the instructions below.

There are a host of other proposals as well on the site, so please do browse the site.

Dear Friends and JusticeMakers,

International Bridges to Justice is pleased to announce the return of the Justicemakers People’s Choice Award. As you may know, IBJ is determining eight JusticeMakers legal aid fellowship recipients via a formal judging process. The ninth $5,000 fellowship recipient will be chosen by YOU.

Now through May 17th, registered users on have the opportunity to rate access to justice initiatives on a 1 to 5-star scale. The person whose project has the highest average rating at the end of this period wins a cash prize, participation in a week-long training event in Singapore, and a global network of support to implement his or her idea.
