ABHAS designs innovative programs using a rights based approach and these community-based programs are closely monitored. Close contact with the children and their families is ensured through social workers, teachers and outreach workers. The underlying strategy adopted by ABHAS aims at building capacity of women and youth, empowering them to become change agents to promote education in their communities.
In 2018, ABHAS launched its Swabhiman Program -an initiative to empower adolescent girls and women to lead a dignified life and transform them into change agents to improve health seeking behaviour among all community members. The primary target groups of the program are married women (15 - 49 years) and adolescent girls (10 -19 years), with men and local government health agencies being the secondary target groups. The Program has covered more than 2500 families so far. Currently, the Program is supported by the Smile Foundation.
