Rajasthan

The HRLN Rajasthan Unit, based out of Jaipur, was established in 2005, to provide legal aid to state’s underprivileged, particularly to dalits, women, and children, who are the worst victims of a rigidly caste-ridden society. The Rajasthan Unit is committed to developing alliances and partnerships with other civil society organizations, sensitising the bureaucracy on the needs of the people, providing access to justice to the marginalized through pro bono or low cost legal aid, and undertaking legal advocacy and awareness campaigns to benefit the poor.
