Control Arms Foundation of India along with Multiple Action Research Group and Manipur Women Gun Survivors Network inaugurated its Delhi Women Support Centre on 14th January 2017 in Safdarjung Enclave of South Delhi. The aim of this Women Support Centre is to provide relief, rehabilitation and legal assistance to survivors of racial & sexual violence. This support centre will also act as a place for regular interaction, discussion on women rights, human rights, livelihood options, government schemes, and most importantly provide psychological support and handholding for legal assistance to individual women victim of sexual violence and racial discrimination. The centre assumes functions as an intermediary between authorities and communities.

Control Arms Foundation of India is fully committed to the realisation of gender equality as there is no sustainable development and peace without addressing the needs of the women and fulfilling their human rights, said Ms Binalakshmi Nepram, General Secretary, Control Arms Foundation India. The centre will have trained woman counsellors, including a psychiatric and a legal expert and this centre will provide immediate support to the victim of sexual violence and racial discrimination, she further added.

Control Arms Foundation of India has been working in the field of addressing gender based violence and especially sexual violence in conflict areas for the past 5 years. In our pursuit for empowering lives of vulnerable women is to provide them immediate support in the form of a support home at the time of distress. In this regard Control Arms Foundation of India has opened several support centers for women in the States of Tripura, Manipur, Assam and now in New Delhi.
