 The teacher and the taught
Private and government schools charge money for the childrens education to pay salaries of the teachers. When a family does not have enough money, the children do not attend school and classes. Many such children in the slum areas of the city were not attending classes for this reason. CAF took up the sponsorship of salaries for eight teachers of the upper-primary school. Sponsoring the schoool teachers substantially reduces the amount a child/parent needs to spend on education. Consequently, many more parents were able to send their children to school and many more children are attending school and classes on a regular, daily basis.
 Hanumanth overcomes despair!
When Hanumanth Raos father, a daily wager, committed suicide due to bad debts, the family was on the streets. CAF took him on a doctors reference, provided shelter and food and put him in a private school. Today he is a confident Class 8 student. Father of Hanumanth Rao was daily wage labourer. As he could never make ends meet, he started borrowing to cover his debts. His borrowings got him deeper into debt. He realized that it had become impossible for him to clear his debts and he committed suicide by consuming poison. As his mother was not able to do any work, the family was immediately thrown into a very critical situation! Hanumanth Rao was given immediate medical attention, food, and clothing. After gaining back his strength and health, he was admitted into Grade 8 of a private school. The Director of the school donated the seat to Child Aid Foundation. Hanumanth Rao is now healthy, happy, and studying well in the 8th standard. He plans to pursue his educational to the highest level possible for him.
 Reshma Gets a Second Chance
Reshma used to attend school and was studying well. She completed Grade 6 and was preparing to enter 7th. Life, however, dealt her a cruel blow and her father suddenly died. Her family lost all their income and was forced to remove her from school. With the Child Secondary Education Fees Sponsorship, Reshma was readmitted into school without charging her or her family any fees. Reshma is now able to attending classes regularly. She is studying well in Grade 7 and is determined to complete her education to as high a level as possible for her. She has been given a second chance for an education and successful life.
 The Basics of Life for a Child
Linga Swami lost his father when he was still very young. His mother being uneducated and unskilled could do nothing more than unskilled, daily labor works whenever and wherever she could find jobs. Even just feeding herself and her family, including Linga Swami, became almost impossible. Linga Swami was admitted into Child Aid Foundation residential Ashraya Home Project. Therein, he receives complete aid and care, including three nutritious meals every day. Not having to worry about where his next meal is coming from enables Linga Swami to pursue and concentrate on his studies. He is presently in Grade * and the first ranker in his class! The Child s Daily Food Sponsorship enables Child Aid Foundation to continue to provide him daily food, and also to increase the number of children receiving such food aid.
 Food for the body and the mind!
Before the free, midday meal scheme, only about 80 children, boys and girls used to attend the free, upper-primary school regularly. CAF started the free, midday lunch meal scheme for all the children attending the free, upper primary school on a daily basis. The number of children attending the school and classes regularly has increased dramatically! There are now over 250 children, boys and girls, attending the free school and classes regularly! They are both physically and mentally healthier. As they are attending school regularly, they are pursuing their educations with the final goal in mind
