The center was established in 1996 at the initiative of residents of the October district of Dushanbe who wanted to help their poorer neighbors. In 1997 it distributed humanitarian aid from the Netherlands to 50 disabled individuals and solitary pensioners. Also in 1997, the center organized a Collection Week in which more than 200 people donated goods that were in turn distributed to more than 60 needy families. The center is currently developing a project to provide educational services to orphans and poor children who have suffered from the civil war.
