PCVC

The International Foundation for Crime Prevention and Victim Care (PCVC) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, registered public charitable trust based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The organization, founded and registered in 2001, was started as a response to Chennai's noticeable absence of support agencies for women who are survivors of domestic abuse.

Our mission is to help rebuild lives damaged by abusive family relationships and to facilitate the process of self-empowerment for women survivors of family violence.

Our projects aim at helping women report instances of violence against them, protect themselves and their children from abusive situations and lead violence free lives.

The goal is to provide and locate resources for women in situations of domestic violence & sexual abuse, helping survivors of domestic violence summon the courage to ask for help and end the cycle of violence.
