Justice is the birth right of all and Jananeethi aims at progressive changes in society, enabling individuals and societies to become aware of their inherent and inalienable rights to life, freedom and dignity.
Jananeethi conceives justice as an incontrovertible right that should heal those who are broken and wounded due to oppression and exploitation. Justice should heal. Jananeethi attempts to achieve this through assisted negotiation and mediation, effectively employing psycho-legal counseling, clinical legal education, group therapy and facts-finding surveys, and facilitating timely and cost-effective grievance redressal to the weaker and vulnerable sections on a priority basis, in view of building a safer and more just society
