Probono Services

Women Cases In Karachi

The National Centre for Dispute Resolution (NCDR) has conducted numerous probono services to help those who are unable to afford legal services.

NCDR has held “Women Mediation Weeks” in the courts to resolve cases involving women litigants free of cost. It stationed its team of mediators in the subordinate courts who would identify and resolve cases by way of mediation. In three mediation weeks held at the subordinate courts, NCDR resolved, by mediation, 53 out of a total of 74 cases involving women litigants thereby giving a success rate of 71.6%. A total of PKR 5,362,648 was released under these disputes. The cases involved dissolution of marriage by khula, guardian and ward, maintenance of wife and children, rent etc. The data is as below:

Promotion of Communal Harmony and Religious Tolerance

Introducing Mediation to Religious Scholars

NCDR believes in communal harmony and religious tolerance by promoting peace and a collaborative culture among the people of Pakistan. For this reason it initiated a training program, free of cost, for 60 religious scholars at Darul Uloom Karachi. The total cost of the project amounted to PKR 809,300 which was borne by NCDR itself and thus 60 scholars were trained in mediation free of cost. The vision was to introduce an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanism among the scholars as they deal with the community at grass root levels. Instead of opting for a religious fatwa, priority should be given to resolution of dispute by mediation to promote communal harmony and religious tolerance.

Continuing Mediation Education for Religious Scholars

As part of continuing education in the art of mediation, NCDR also provided a free of cost one-day refresher course to 11 religious scholars of Jami’atur Rasheed. The training cost was PKR 70,000 which was borne by NCDR itself.
