• The women who are victims of Domestic violence, children and Tribals, are the most vulnerable groups, who become the easy prey for the influential and always live in a life of misery. Women field staff move around in the three Taluks ( Vythiri, Bathery and Manathavady) of Wayanad district, Kerala to identify any issues and they create a rapport with the needy. Awareness is that lacks in the marginalized. Knowledge is power. So we organize seminars in the Panchayaths, schools, aganwadies and in colonies which are in the deep forest, through which we are able to bring about awareness on legal and constitutional rights, specially the need to rise above all the discriminations. Each seminar takes at least 2 – 3 hours. After one hour of the class, the rest of the time is spent to listen to their issues, to visit their hamlets/ families and to mediate some of the problems.

• In the Taluk level, various legal awareness classes, seminars and training programs are given to women, children, elderly and Tribals

• The field staff organize the seminars and due to these the groups are more empowered and they bring out various issues freely and find our intervention as a great help.
