The Access to Justice for Vulnerable Populations in Pakistan is a three year initiative, being implemented by The Asia Foundation in partnership with Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (PILER), Insaf Network Pakistan (INP) and Rozan. The goal of the project is to improve access to justice and human rights through the provision of efficient, cost effective legal assistance and protection for vulnerable populations. The project is working towards the achievement of the following three objectives:

To develop and implement a multi-pronged public awareness campaign that increases citizens’ knowledge of the laws, which protect their fundamental freedoms;
To strengthen the capacity of existing legal aid centers that provide legal services to those whose rights have been violated; and
To advocate for protection measures and fair trial

For the achievement of the first two objectives, the project is working in 13 districts, across all four provinces. These include Lahore, Faisalabad, Nankanasahib, Sahiwal, Multan, Muzaffargarh, Khanewal, Sialkot, Swat, Karachi, Hyderabad, Jacobabad, and Quetta. In each of these districts, the project through the legal aid centers is providing free-of-cost legal aid and counseling services to members of vulnerable communities, particularly ethnic and religious minorities, survivors of gender based violence and persons with disabilities. Advocacy efforts are focused in all four provincial capitals and at the federal level.

The key results of the project include:

Improved knowledge of and positive behaviors among members of the local community, police, legal aid workers and local government bodies towards fundamental rights of vulnerable populations
Improved demand for legal aid services among vulnerable groups
Strengthened capacity of legal aid centers to provide broad range of legal services to vulnerable populations
Increased demand for protection measures and fair trial among civil society, duty bearers and parliamentarians
