AS a frontline campaigner, Jananeethi participate in civil agitations in support of the most disadvantaged and disengaged individuals in society. Some of these included: protests against attacks on Dalits, support for the Rohingya refugees, backing demonstrations against the pollution of Periyar River, in defence of a rape victim and subsequent murder of the victim’s father, solidarity with a community affected by the increasing height of Narmada dam, amongst many others.
JANANEETHI'S core activity is to provide legal aid and psycho-legal counselling, including a helpline for women, children and elderly in distress. They also function as a resource centre for research and dissemination of news on human rights, migrant labour, human trafficking, gender justice, environmental integrity, sustainable development, public health and social legislation. To achieve this, they aim to establish a training centre for paralegals and social work and law students.
This is a participatory approach to improve the standards of health services in the public sector. The project gets support from local self-government under which respective health institutions functions. The Hospital Management Committee is the statutory body with which management of the hospital rests. Jananeethi through its constructive engagements with stakeholders strive to ensure the services are availed by people as per national standards.
My family life was on the verge of breaking. My wife and I had filed police complaints against each other. All attempts at settling the dispute had failed. Finally, Jananeethi's counsellors and law officers helped us sort out matters. We are happy today.
