Hyderabad Council of Human Welfare (HCHW) was established with the intention to empower individuals, families and the community by assisting the neglected sections of the society. Hence they continue to carry on their Targeted Interventions (TI) Program for HIV through which they are moving towards inaccessible areas of Telangana/Andhra Pradesh. They have also increased focus on education of neglected children in Hyderabad by starting a free school for students in August 2013.
Two of their main activities are:
Health: Targeted Intervention (TI) is a government-funded program to identify and create awareness about HIV/AIDS to high risk groups such as FSWs (Female Sex Workers) & MSWs (Male Sex Workers). The PPTCT (Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission) is a program is aimed at preventing HIV transmission from mother to baby. They work with pregnant women through their delivery and post-delivery follow ups for 18 months. They run a Mobile ICTC (Integrated Counselling & Training Centre) for inaccessible areas such as Medak to make HIV testing and counselling services available to areas that are otherwise unattended. This activity accounted for almost 50% of its expense in FY14.
Children’s Home: HCHW runs a Children’s Home focussing on the rescue, rehabilitation and education of distressed children. At the Home, the children are given an environment to feel safe and are enrolled in Bridge Education Program to catch up on the education they might have missed. Later they are reintegrated with their families after counselling and mutual agreement. In 2013, HCHW has started DMR International School for 80 students who are receiving a full time education free of cost, which also includes books and uniforms. Besides this, HCHW also conducts the HITE Program focused on imparting Basic Computer Skills during a 3-month course. HCHW works for the STEM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in partnership with Verizon Foundation to encourage girls between the 8th – 10th grades to improve their understanding in Science and Math and pursue them as careers. With all these initiatives they have reached out to about 1.1 million children till date.
