The group of lawyers present during the workshop pledged to start the legal aid clinic at district and block level in Bihar and Jharkhand to enhance the access to justice.


The ultimate aim of Pairvi is to improve the human rights conditions through capacity building of grassroots organizations on advocacy, rights based approach and human rights issues and monitoring of human rights conditions.
The intervention seeks to enhance basic human rights and strengthening an organization's capacity to be partner in development.
The intervention serves slightly different constituency of grassroots organizations and is based on the premise that capacity building of organizations would really translate into improved accessibility, availability and affordability for the under privileged constituency they represent. However, going beyond this structural edifice, the intervention also interacts and involves people and communities in its various efforts.
