The girls are provided everything free including education, books and uniforms, transport as well an incentive of Rs.10 per day for attending school and complete their school education. The School is providing education to nearly 200 children at present, majority being drop out girls. - The trust also works for integrated development in surrounding villages and slums there including hygiene, sanitation, vaccination, safe drinking water, nutrition, maternal & child care, health education, awareness and treatment on their door steps. - For non availability of electricity in villages, solar lights are distributed to school going children in villages to facilitate their education which also benefit their families by helping to decrease pollution, accidents and hazards due to kerosene use otherwise.

The impact increases many fold by many volunteers working on floor without any costs. –Help is required to provide for the children in Snehalaya and its maintenance as well for planned expansion to make it a facility for 200 disabled and destitute children. At present there are 63 children in Snehalaya undergoing special education and training. - The special need school and health centre there provides special education and health care services to the local community also. -Money is required to educate girls from villages, which in turn will help with women empowerment and whole family for future generations too.
