Documentation, Research & Training Centre

The Documentation, Research and Training Centre [DRTC] was instituted to fulfil the objectives of the Justice and Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Mumbai. It was inaugurated on November 13, 1993 by Cardinal Simon Pimenta.


DRTC aims at creating a society in which the dignity of human beings is respected and their holistic growth encouraged, but in a special way it caters to the marginalized.


The process used is participation in self-development and empowerment.


The focus is the community and the transformation of society.


For this reason, DRTC also networks with community-based organizations and socially committed individuals who have a similar vision.


This vision of DRTC is accomplished through the activities of the following departments:
  • Documentation & Publication
  • Research
  • Training
  • Legal Aid Cell
  • Human Rights Watch Cell
