Crowdfunding since 2010

Torture has no place in the world of tomorrow - support us in building a platform to strengthen the fight against torture worldwide!

Even though international law universally and absolutely prohibits torture and ill-treatment, they are still a reality all over the world. Torture is not only a single, isolated phenomenon, but it is often systematically employed in the name of security. Research shows: torture prevention works. Although there is still a long way to go, torture can be eradicated. Help us bring the Atlas of Torture to life. Be part of it - together we are more powerful than we often think!

Website Launch

This year we want to honour the International Day in Support of Torture Victims in a special way: with the launch of a beta-version version of our new website.

The website – developed together with HURIDOCS - will host the most comprehensive database and a global cooperation platform on torture and ill-treatment. To continuously develop the database we encourage other organisations and researchers to send us their reports, training materials, guidelines etc, thereby contributing towards a comprehensive one-stop-shop for material related to torture and ill-treatment.

Together with HURIDOCS we also developed some ideas on how to realise the Projects & Activities Map and the Learning & Exchange Platform we want to establish with your support. To make them a reality, we need you - every donation matters! Have a look at what we have developed so far and if you have not yet done it: join our campaign!

A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported us so far – every donation is bringing us closer to our goal!
