We propose to start an educational center for basic literacy of tribal children. The poor illiterate tribal parents in our project area cannot fulfill the basic needs of their children and do not want to send their children to the school. We propose to establish one pre primary school for the kids within the age group of 3 to 6 years. The children will be provided with basic education. We will run this program for providing those poor children a steppingstone of education by a compulsory schooling in the pre-primary level and prepare them for admission in the primary level formal schools. We have also planned to utilize the same school as an adult literacy center preferably for the parents of those selected children. Elementary education will be provided. Asha Stanford is funding the 'Open-field Pre-school' for tribal kids.
The mission of CAHUS is to promote a sustainable social development for the wellbeing of indigenous and backward class (Adivasi and Harijan) community people of Chhotanagpur geographical region. Our organization aims to facilitate a far reaching social development with an integrated approach in the field of health, education, livelihood and nature conservation. Purpose of our work is to uphold social wellbeing for the poor and marginalized tribal communities with special focus to the downtrodden women and children.
The process of germination of CAHUS and its development in the nascence stage has been interesting. Some. socio-genetic factors led to the foundation of CAHUS. In the process of contributing to social development by a group of like-minded young social activists in the backward areas of Palamu district in Jharkhand during the last decade of 20th century, a small NGO was formed, which was registered in the year 1995 as ‘Chhotanagpur Adivasi-Harijan Utthan Samiti’ (CAHUS) with a unique aim to uplift the socioeconomic condition of socially isolated tribal and lower cast communities residing all over the vast geographical region
of Chhotanagpur. Since then CAHUS is engaged for providing humanitarian services for the underprivileged and marginalized section of the population by keeping its activity focus on education, health, care, livelihood, environment and so on by touching all the vital aspects of human life. Gradually in this process the organization got support from the downtrodden segment of the tribal and other lower class community people.

Objectives of CAHUS are to educate, organize, support, and empower the rural poor for promoting development as a liberating force to ensure gender equity and social justice. We aim to eradicate poverty and promote self reliance by improving quality of lives of the poor and deprived community people through meaningful socio-economic growth in all spheres of human life.
