Delivery of holistic torture rehabilitation services and advocacy were promoted. Holistic services mean that the anti-torture centre provides, among others, both social and psychological assistance as well as support to economic rehabilitation. The goal is that torture victims can become pro-active participating citizens in the social, economic and political development of their communities.

Focus was on the EU evaluation criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, identification of outcome and impact and sustainability.
