Ms. Heena Panjabi came to India after living in Dubai for 18 years, with the zest of studying law and fulfilling her dream of being a legal practitioner. Her main motive of studying law was to work with people and educate them about the law, as ignorance of law leads to fear of the law.
She started an initiative through the ever growing social media network -'LAW WISE INDIA' with the main motive of providing information, educating and simplifying different laws, acts, rules and regulations in India.
Following her passion, she came on board with Aks Foundation as a legal advisor in 2014. She provides legal help and knowledge to women, men and children undergoing abuse. She also educates the volunteers at Aks through training modules focused on Domestic Violence and Sexual Harassment so that they are better equipped to handle cases on the Crisis Help lines.
