What We Do
Legal identity is the basic requirement for everyone to enjoy their fundamental citizenship rights. Lacking civil documents affects in one’s daily life including freedom of movement, access to public services and many other things. Braveheart Foundation tries to assist undocumented people to access legal identity through community-based paralegals in project areas. It also provides legal counseling through social media to promote public awareness and understand the application process.
