THE FOUNDING

The founder and director of Child Aid Foundation is Dr. A. Goswami (adopted Indian name), Ph.D. Born, raised, and educated in the New York City area of the U.S.A., he came to India in the 1980's for personal tour and research.

It was not his plan to either remain in India or to start a social service organization. During his extensive travels throughout the length and breadth of the country, he repeatedly encountered many very poor and needy children such as slum children, street children, child laborers, and even juvenile delinquents.

He was very moved by their plight and inspired to help them. Thus, the seed for the Child Aid Foundation was planted. Dr. Goswami acquired Indian citizenship and started working with such children in 1988 in an informal way on a trial basis.

By 1993, the degree of success was such that he decided it was necessary to start an actual organization. Consequently, on July 1st, 1993, the Child Aid Foundation was legally registered as a non-profit, non-political, secular, public charitable trust. Since then, there has been no looking back!
