CAS Chairperson Speaks
"When the present Council took over the reins of administration, the Society, infact, was at crossroads.

It is agreed that thinking human beings must differ and variation is definitely a sign of life. Yet, in a Child Welfare Agency, the pendulam couldn't just be allowed to slow down and come to a stand still and so there was an urgent need for acceleration of Child Welfare Machinery and bringing stability to the agency.

My dream is to see the "9 Wonders of the World" into a unique children's complex consisting of beautiful dormitories schools, stadia and pools where innumerable faces of happy and healthy children would be seen all around."

THE PERFORMANCE


General Information

MANPOWER

A work force having a high morale is one of the most important assets any organization can have. In a Social Organization like the Children’s Aid Society, there is every opportunity for concerted effort and coordinated action. In order to elicit the best out of the staff working for children, training and refresher courses, research and evaluation, therefore, are the thrust areas which are being accorded priorities.


Finance

Society’s work being statutory programmes, since its inception, the Government of Maharashtra has been funding the Society by giving grant in aid. At present, the grant is Rs. 625\- (Rs. Six hundred and twenty five only ) per child per month to cover expenses on food, clothing, shelter, health care education etc. Owing to ever rising cost of living, there has always been a yawning gap between the actual expenditure and the grant received resulting in deficit budgeting. So much so that even to meet the minimum standards there is a shortage of Rs. 10,000\- (Rs. Ten thousand only) per child per annum. As also, for all development programmes, there has always been cash crunch. Moreover, it is only with the implementation of novel projects that children’s all round growth could be ensured. It is, therefore, sincerely hoped that corporate bodies and philanthropic individuals will come out with generous offers to translate children’s dream projects into reality.
