OneWorld Foundation India, a leading community media and ICT4D organisation in partnership with the Department of Justice, Ministry of Law & Justice, Government of India, and UNDP is organising two workshops in the states of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh under the Access to Justice Project. NyayaPath is an innovative Access to Justice initiative to enable marginalised and other communities in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh to use technology to access information on welfare laws, policies and schemes in local languages like Santhali and Chhattisgarhi.
A daylong interactive workshop is designed to demystify and create awareness about the Access to Justice movement, and to motivate participant organisations to promote the initiative.
The workshop aims to support the efforts of establishing the work of different organisations in the state that are working on disseminating rights based information to the marginalised communities.
The specific objectives of the workshop are:
• Highlighting work of different organisations that are working on empowering communities
• Legal Themes and Benefits under Schemes (state specific)
• Demonstration of NyayaPath info kiosk
• How organisations could help in spreading awareness
