Khushboo Welfare Society has four main divisions : Sparsh (early intervention program for children from 0-6 years), Blessings (the school for children from 6-15 years), Samarth (vocational training program for adolescents and adults from 15-30+ years), and Samvedan (for children with profound disabilities). Currently, they have a student: teacher ratio of 10: 1 with an assistant in a classroom for mixed group of children with different disabilities. Further, the ratio is 5: 1 for children with severe and profound mental disabilities with a committed attendant for looking after feeding and toilet needs of children with disabilities. The teachers have degrees/diploma/training in special education, and have years of experience. Their main operational expense every year is towards the remuneration of 10 teachers, and 11 therapists/assistants, currently on roll, along with the school bus drivers, watchmen, and management staff. Asha-Austin, knowing as to how important, it is for an organization to retain its dedicated staff, especially teachers, decided to fund this project towards remuneration of salaries.

In India's map, Gurgaon is one of the most progressive cities in the National Capital Region in the periphery of Delhi. However, there has been an evident lack of specialized services, in the region, especially for persons with mental and multiple disabilities. Moreover, a daily commute to New Delhi, from Gurgaon, for these differently-abled children, is neither pragmatic nor conducive to their environment. About 12 years back, this core problem was identified by a few spirited individuals who were touched by such crisis in some form or the other. They came together to provide a professionally equipped facility for care, development and education, for children with mental and multiple disabilities, in particular for those with acute impairment within Gurgaon.

Pioneers in Gurgaon, Khushboo Welfare Society caters to all segments of the society be it poor or rich with quality services. Though today there are other similar private centers or regular schools with special wings, Khushboo still remains the only centre which provides multiple services (both therapeutic and educational / vocational) to cater to all kinds of patients and students. Regular schools with special wings take mostly 'trainable' children while most of Khushboo children are severely challenged. Khushboo is also well known for its rural intervention programs where it conducts workshops at village level on various subjects related to disability to equip rural caregivers with knowledge and information.
