Initiatives for Dialogue and Empowerment through Alternative Legal Services
IDEALS Inc. is a local non-profit, non-stock legal focused advocacy and service institution. We 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.
We have been instrumental in providing legal assistance to development organization and empowering them to take control and shape their own future through our Legal Equity and Development Consultancy Program.
We ensure the recovery and build resiliency of disaster-prone communities through education on civil registration, strengthening of local civil registration procedures and provision of gender-fair legal assistance in accessing benefits and legal claims, a basic right to social protection.
