Legal Counseling

Each month, Shaheen directly serves 150 beneficiaries and upto 5,000 indirect beneficiaries. Many women come to Shaheen to benefit from the legal counseling and medical resources. The objective behind these activities is to ensure gender equality and justice.

As awareness about Shaheen and its activities is increasing and many people are seeking Shaheen’s assistance and are approaching for help. There has been an increase in legal cases, as many women approach on their own to complain and to work with Shaheen. The awareness campaign has been able to reach out to women everywhere. And in order to sensitise more men, we have attempted to draw the attention of more male volunteers, who can further campaigns among men in the Old City. The total number of legal cases received for the year 2010- 2011 is 120.
