Samata foundations endeavours facilitating legal empowerment to the unorganised sector for the development of the under privileged and unorganised sector viz., construction labour, migrant labour, domestic workers, Dalits, economically backward people through its various projects.
Samata foundations enables people from under priviledged and unorganised sector particularly for women to access and secure justice.
Legal Empowerment Strategy:
- Sensitizing women domestic workers on Formal Justice Mechanisms.
- Creating an enabling environment for good governance through awareness.
- Building a cadre of Community Transformer as Vigilance Committee.
- Building a cadre of Women Para-Legal Workers.
- Creating Legal Awareness and Human Rights.
The strategy for Legal empowerment will accentuate a culture of rights within communities. This will involve developing and building capacity of a cadre of formal justive mechanisms who will support women and their families to access formal justice mechanisms and enable better access to entitlements of women and their famililes. As a mechanism of executing the legal empowerment strategy, formal justice mechanismswill be the first point of contact for legal awareness and aid and will facilitate access to redressal mechanisms through Women Empowerment and Resource Centre. Para-Legal Workers (PLWs) will perform advisory and support roles in supporting women and their families, access rights and entitlements. Linkage of the PLWs with existing mechanisms and institutions of justice delivery like District Legal Services Authority (DLSA), legal aid cells run by NGOs, local groups of lawyers and social activists, etc. will be established to contribute to the sustainability of project.
