This center was established in February 2000. The center was initiated to help the victims of torture and violence. This was the only centre started in Delhi with specific aim of helping and rehablitating victims of torture and violence. The center made a very modest beginning from one small room in NOIDA. Now the center has been shifted to Basti Vikas Kendra at Sriniwaspuri in South Delhi. This place has been allotted to us by Municipal Corporation of Delhi. The center has received support and guidance from IRCT (International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims) right from its inception. The center received initial funding from European Union (EU) through IRCT. The center has been receiving regular support from United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture (UNFVTV). The center is also receiving support, guidance and assistance from Center for Victims of Torture (CVT), Minneapolis, USA. The center has formal understanding with UNHCR, India office to provide help to torture victims. The center is receiving support and cooperation from several local Indian & International Non-Governmental Organisations to provide help to torture victims.
All the services provided to the torture victims and secondary victims of torture are free of cost.
