Thus will reduce gender inequalities, inequalities among communities and will establish peace and justice.

The community of JCI Camp (around 1000 people) live under the poverty line thus it is a luxury for them to afford a lawyer for the issues they face unjustly on daily basis. Most of them are even unaware of their legal rights and of the remedies they may get again those abuse.

Moreover, the community of the JCI Camp, mostly known as stranded Pakistanis, face the worse treatment from the public authorities due do their citizenship status even after 36 years has passed after the liberation war in 1971. However, the Bangladesh government has passed few laws in favour of this community that is still not being implemented by the public authorities. Another reason for non-implementation is that these people are unaware of these laws those give them certain rights.

Therefore, the project is being initiated with the intention to make these community people aware of their basic rights as well as remedies available for the abuse they are currently facing thus reduce inequality and establish justice.


Results

• 800 adults of the community know their legal rights as Bangladeshi residents.

• 800 adults of the community received free legal consultation in regard to legal issues they face.


Recommendations

• For better support, collaboration with many charitable legal institution should be formed.
• For following up the matter with public authorities, more volunteers should come forward in this regard.
