We foster an enabling environment in local government schools to enhance the learning outcomes of children. We also promote physical education and reading as key activities that support a child’s journey through school.
Via special education, rehabilitation and allied support services, we help children with special needs reach their full potential in life.

In 2011, ACF transformed perceptions about what ‘differently abled’ children can and cannot achieve, by sending 9 students to compete in the World Summer Special Olympics – bringing home 13 Olympic Medals! It all began when they started training children in sports like badminton, cycling and athletics – showcasing to the world, that these children are special indeed!

In Chandrapur, a lack of training, learning materials and poor teaching quality and infrastructure, meant that schools were graded ‘C or D’ level by district and state boards – with many children dropping out as a result. ACF turned this situation around by not only ensuring schools were graded ‘A or B’, but met International standards, by securing ISO Certification.

ACF is building the stamina of children by promoting sports in schools. With a range of sports and physical exercise activities implemented in schools twice a week, children are thriving outside the classroom, and inside it, as a result.

ACF is promoting reading as a strong foundation for education and language, in Chandrapur Maharashtra with increased reading levels among tribal students as a result. By engaging 7 Pustak Fairies (reading volunteers) and targeting 7 core villages with 327 students from 1st to 8th grade, children are today competently reading books, letters, and newspapers at a higher level.
