The Kerala Unit with its offices at Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Wayanad and Alappuzha provides legal assistance on all human rights issues. The Kochi office, established in 2002, holds the distinction of being an all-women team. In keeping with its mission statement, ‘access to all with dedication and sincerity’, the state team works tirelessly putting the legal system to work for those who would normally be denied access to justice due to lack of procedural knowledge, financial costs and other situational and/or cultural constraints.

While the team primarily focuses on issues related to women, children and persons with disabilities in response to community demands, the members also reach out to all groups while working on issues like right to food and

HIV/AIDS. Collaboration with other HRLN offices is routine. Future plans include expanding programmes into the interior-most parts of Kerala in order to support those who are most isolated.

The state unit has also made a strong impact on women’s issues related to domestic abuse, discrimination, desertion and child abduction. One instance involves a case where a woman was denied custody and access to her minor daughter for the past six years after having been deserted by her husband. With HRLN’s support, the child was reunited with her mother. The state unit also assists disabled people navigate the complexities of the legal system to claim their rights.
