BALAY Rehabilitation Center, Inc.
BALAY Rehabilitation Center is a non-governmental organization that works for the psychosocial relief and rehabilitation of survivors of human rights violations. It provides services primarily to the survivors of torture and organized violence, as well as to those who are displaced by armed conflict.
Apart from service delivery and the rehabilitation of human rights violations survivors, BALAY also promotes the protection and fulfillment of the right to be free from torture and ill-treatment, peace and the respect for International Humanitarian Law and the rights of persons deprived of their liberty through a national advocacy program that engages the state through, policy reform, critical partnerships and training of the policing, security and custodial sectors on human rights. Campaigning for the state adhesion to and effective implementation of freedom from torture and other human rights instruments such as the Anti-Torture Act and the UN Convention Against Torture is at the heart of the organizations work.
The organization consists of an interdisciplinary staff and volunteers who have academic backgrounds and experience in the fields of psychology, social work, community development, popular education, social enterprise development, and peace and human rights advocacy.
