We have several programs that you can choose from
When you adopt a CSA-supported child care institute, you can choose to support it partially or entirely. We bring in the responsibility to monitor and provide inputs in training, technical expertise, build capacity, information on children's rights, communication, and campaign support.
You can make a direct donation towards a specific cause that your company would like to support. From education, healthcare, aftercare and livelihoods support – you have a wide array of causes to choose! Your donation would be directed towards our programs which address your preferred cause.
Cause-Related Marketing and Events Sponsorship
You can integrate your marketing campaigns with our programs and events to create meaningful social impact and enhance the goodwill of your brand!
Via this program, employees who wish to be connected to a social cause can contribute a small part of their remuneration, on a monthly basis. This automated process, on signup, can be further leveraged with the organization choosing to match the employee’s grant.
Volunteering is a great addition to your employee engagement program. Your employees can choose to volunteer at our projects by teaching, skill-building, aiding documentation, technology training, fundraising, etc. – small ways to contribute that make a big difference!

Nurturing children who need care and protection in a familial environment is important to ensure their transformation into socially responsible citizens. CSA has been quietly doing noteworthy work in this area and the impact it has created across India has been significant. The fact that the organization also focuses on imparting higher education and vocational skills makes its child care – comprehensive, complete and distinct.
