Children of Vulnerable Families »Watch Video
Children, belonging to families where a history of criminality and imprisonment exist, are at the highest risk; of being negatively influenced, illiteracy, lacking social security and of carrying a lifelong stigma.
The CVF Project identifies children from prison and from slum areas and provides them support in terms of schooling, boarding, financial support wherever required. Our Counselors along with the CVF Project Manager take care of the overall well being and material needs of the child, while also engaging with their parents, relatives, school staff and prison authorities. At present 190 children are registered in the CVF Project.

POST ADMISSIONS - What Next?
Once these children become a part of the IVF family, we engage ourselves with them in various activities:
School Visits: The Project Manager, with a team of counselors make regular visits to the schools where our children reside. Few of the activities we carry out are; organize Parent-Teacher meetings, engage the children in group and individual counseling sessions and interactive games, celebrate their birthdays etc.
Home Visits: We conduct regular follow-ups with parents, to assure them of the welfare of their children. Additionally, we also supervise the progress of children who benefit from the IVF Scholarship, even though they study at nonresidential schools.
Prison Visits: We organize regular Mother-Child meetings inside Tihar Prison. Encouraging these children to bond with their mother and celebrate festivals like Holi with their mothers.
Exposure Trips: In an effort to give our children a break from the ‘routine’ and to encourage their holistic development, we organize educational outings and exposures for them.
After +2: We promote Vocational Training and Distance Learning courses for our older children, to ensure their Employability and [Financial] Independence.
