Free Legal Aid for Slum Communities
Navsarjan recognizes the importance of legal awareness and access to justice for a fair and equitable society. Our Free Legal Aid Unit empowers slum residents, particularly women, to:
  • Understand their rights: We educate residents on their fundamental rights, responsibilities, and entitlements as Indian citizens.
  • Seek legal recourse: We guide them on how to navigate the legal system when their rights are violated.
  • Access legal representation: Our lawyer offers legal counsel and assists with understanding legal procedures.
Challenges and Solutions:
We understand the challenges faced by slum dwellers:
  • High costs: Legal battles can be expensive and time-consuming, impacting daily income.
  • Conflict escalation: Litigation can sometimes lead to further disputes within families and communities.
  • Police bias: Unequal treatment by law enforcement can discourage residents from seeking legal help.
Our Approach:
Navsarjan addresses these concerns through:
  • Awareness camps: We organize informative sessions in slums and our center to educate residents about their legal rights.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR): We encourage mediation and negotiation to resolve conflicts before resorting to court.
Our Free Legal Aid Unit strives to ensure slum residents can access justice and live with dignity.
