Child Rights
The purpose of the Abhiyvakti is to outline the basic human rights that should be afforded to children. There are four broad classifications of these rights. These four categories cover all civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights of every child.

1. Right to Survival: A child's right to survival begins before a child is born.Hence the right to survival is inclusive of the child rights to be born, right to minimum standards of food, shelter and clothing, and the right to live with dignity.

2. Right to Protection: A child has the right to be protected from neglect, exploitation and abuse at home, and elsewhere.

3. Right to Participation: A child has a right to participate in any decision making that involves him/her directly or indirectly. There are varying degrees of participation as per the age and maturity of the child.

4. Right to Development: Children have the right to all forms of development: Emotional, Mental and Physical. Emotional development is fulfilled by proper care and love of a support system, mental development through education and learning and physical development through recreation, play and nutrition.

Abhiyvakti considers child protection as the prevention of or responding to the incidence of abuse, exploitation, violence and neglect of children. This includes commercial sexual exploitation, trafficking, child labour and harmful traditional practices, such as female genital mutilation/cutting and child marriage. Protection also allows children to have access to their other rights of survival, development, growth and participation. UNICEF maintains that when child protection fails or is absent children have a higher risk of death, poor physical and mental health, HIV/AIDS infection, educational problems, displacement, homelessness, vagrancy and poor parenting skills later in life.

Creche
Motive of having Creche is to have adults who take care of children in place of their parents.Abhiyvakti Creche Fund was set up by us with the objective to meet the growing demand for crèches and to provide day care facilities to the children in the age group of 0-5 years.A crèche should be a place where your child is secure and happy while she is away from her home and set up. It should contribute to your child's emotional, social and physical development. Look around and do your homework well so you can find one that is perfect for your child. If you are apprehensive about leaving your child in a crèche, just remember that you are not alone Abhiyvakti is with you. It can be taxing and sometimes even heartbreaking to leave your little one with absolute strangers in a completely new environment. You need to feel assured, comfortable, and confident before leaving your child at the crèche of Abhiyvakti.

Talented youth and students require polishing in their skills and need proper career guidance. Else, they end up in choosing a wrong career. The HWF runs various such initiatives to polish skills of youngsters and guide them in choosing career as per their capabilities.

HWF is eager to train district wise career guidance trainers under the Vision-2016 program. The trainer would disseminate information on educational opportunities and give career guidance and coaching to students along with moral values. Last year we have organized a workshop for this project in Rajasthan and this year plan to be organizing in West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh.
