CVICT was established in 1990 and registered as a nonprofit and non-government organization in Nepal. Since its formation, its efforts have centred on the rehabilitation of torture victims as well as the prevention of torture.
CVICT has diligently rehabilitated victims of torture in Nepal over the last 20 years. Its emphasis on psychosocial services along with medical treatment helps victims, as well as their families, return to normal life.
CVICT's goals are to restore human dignity, end impunity, and work towards eradicating torture from Nepal. For people suffering from consequences of torture and other forms of organized violence it provides holistic services to address a person's physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being, and help restore the social fabric in the family and community.
In addition, CVICT activities attempt to prevent torture and other human rights abuses or forms of organized violence. These activities include advocacy, legal aid, fact finding, community mediation, awareness programmes, campaigning and networking with line agencies, including national and international communities.
