Swadharma Human Care Foundation (SHCF) is a not-for-profit company, registered under section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013. We work in the area of child care and child protection by providing legal and psycho-social services
Our experiences in the field of child rights and child protection made us aware of the glaring gaps between the legal system and the beneficiaries of it. We realise that the children are the worst victims of this gap and consequently are the ones who are exploited the most. We felt that a mechanism was needed to plug in this gap, thus functioning as a bridge between the government and the non government sectors working for child rights and child protection and so, Swadharma Human Care Foundation was born.
Legal awareness is the natural starting point for legal empowerment,
which is often followed by legal assistance. The organization provides
child friendly need based assistance, support and guidance. These include:
Legal Aid Clinics
Documentation and Conveyancing
Direct Legal Assistance
The integration of a child with the community and the protection and well being of the child within that community is a priority for us.
In order to do so, we offer a number of psychological services to the child and the guardians. These include
Child and adolescent counseling
Career counseling and aptitude testing
Research and policy intervention We offer research and data collection services. We also conduct a number of surveys and researches in order to know the on ground effects of policies and government schemes. We seek to know the areas that need intervention and then take steps needed to bring about improvement.
It is only through knowledge and awareness that any organic change can be brought about. In consonance with this belief, we conduct various sensitization and legal- psychological- social awareness campaigns and capacity building workshops in childcare centers, schools, and with parents. The focus of these workshops is to open up communication channels between parents and children, and to make them aware of their legal rights and duties.
