The organization sets up the following mission: focus on depressed and poor segments of our society, help them to go through the process of legal advice’s.
Many people are suffering from hardship or injury specially in India. They feel frustrated because (1) they have no means to redress injustice or rectify what is wrongful (2) their applications or requests go unattended (3) under staffed or under equipped institutions and shops fail to respect what they promise. For example-if one buys certain defective goods from the shops or gets bad services from the workmen or workmen do not take the goods back or workmen do not do the job again to the customer’s satisfaction, customer does not know what to do. Poor people have to donate a lot of money to get admission in some institutions for their child`s education or bribe the officials to get their legitimate requirements, or their friends or relatives die in a hospitals because of the doctors’ negligence or being harassed by the officials for no reasons. There are many examples like these in every aspect of life. They do not know what to do if they face any problems like these. High cost deters poor people seeking legal advice. That is why the law centre has been set up a organisation in Prayagraj Uttar Pradesh under the name “Progressive Welfare Foundation (PWF)“ We have provisions to open branches all over India.
