As a direct result of Child Haven's presence in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Tibet in China, employment has been created for over 70 women at this time. Child Haven Homes employ women as managers, teachers, caregivers, dhobis, cooks, office staff, matrons and health care professionals.

Through Manav Vikas Parishad (MVP), a Ghaziabad NGO, Child Haven is operating a Family Planning Awarenes program for women. Rajni, one of two Child Haven workers is winning the confidence of the local women and accompanies individual women to the hospital for Family Planning and other services. There are also literacy classes, a homeopathic health clinic, with a volunteer doctor, assisted by the two Child Haven/MVP women and the Soyacow program to provide low cost milk and employment to women.
