Child Aid Foundation undertakes conventional education from the Nursery to the 9th standard/class (this year 10th) level according to the government Department of Education approved syllabus and curriculum. The parents and children come from the city slum and/or impoverished village areas. The parents are uneducated, illiterate, and very poor. They work in petty jobs or petty "businesses". None of the children are employed.

CAF provides free: 1) education, 2) transportation to and from school, 3) textbooks, 4) notebooks, 5) school supplies, 6) midday lunch, 7) school uniform, 8) coaching/tutoring during non-school hours, and 9) non-school clothing. The school's campus, infrastructure, facilities, and quality of teaching are also much better than most of the other schools, especially the government ones.

Parents are involved in the school committee as well as in the regular Parents-Teachers meetings wherein they freely express their ideas, suggestions, requests, and complaints if any. The school follows the conventional syllabus/curriculum approved by the Department of Education.
We wanted to enable poor and needy children to become educated, fully self-reliant, and beneficial members of the society and country in which they live. To provide comprehensive aid and care to poor and needy children, boys and girls, of all ages and academic levels on both a residential and non-residential basis to enable them to pursue their educations to as high a level as they desire and are capable of achieving.
