Tomorrow's Foundation (TF) is an NGO with whom Asha has been working for eight years as part of the Street to School Project. TF provides holistic education to street/slum children living in a high-risk social and physical environment at Kalighat, Kolkata's red light district.

Tomorrow's Foundation started by adopting Dharamdas Trust Model School, Kalighat. The range of activities expanded from modest after school classes for children to medical support, nutrition, rehabilitation and hostel placement, psychological and career counseling, vocational training, and adult education. For children who cannot complete the formal ten years of schooling, the Foundation trains and helps them take Open School Exam that is equivalent to Std. X board exam. Tomorrow's Foundation staff regularly visits the children's homes and schools regularly to ensure greater community involvement. The project currently supports 200 children. Approximately 1200 children have graduated from the Foundation school. No wonder it is a UNESCO model project!
