The Centre for Human Rights and Legal Aid strives to develop a society where everyone has equal access to the justice system and a national sustainable legal aid model tailored to local needs. The CHRLA provides free legal assistance in the following cases:
- Where there is a violation of human rights by the state or non- state actors
- To persons who are victims of the abuse of due process
- Due process in prisons primarily for women and juveniles
- To persons seeking their rights under family and property law
In addition to the above, the CHRLA also has a dedicated ‘Women and Child Aid Unit’ which not only provides legal aid to women and children who are victims of sexual violence, but also provides psychological help and mental rehabilitation to traumatized victims through expert Psychologists on our panel.
