AXF does not have a revenue model, we need consistent donors to fund our work so we can continue our work year after year.



Supported by many individual supporters as well as corporate donors, we have come this far. We need continued support to run our programs and build our capacity to do better and to do more.

Sponsor a child: By sponsoring a child’s tuition @ Rs. 8500 per year per child (which amounts to a mere Rs. 708 a month), you will contribute towards our expenses that will allow us to progress as planned.

Sponsorship includes direct program expenses incurred in resource spend for the children, staff salaries of the center management teams and allocated expenses of central resources like trainers, coordinators, curriculum experts, account, media, management office etc.

Sponsor a snack – For just Rs. 1000/- you could sponsor a nutritious snack for a batch of 100 kids. You can even visit a center and feed the children something sumptuous on a special occasion.

Sponsor a fun activity: We provide exposure to children that can broaden their perspective and allow them to experience activities which every child should get a chance at. Our generous donors take our children to sponsored trips to movies, amusement parks, picnics etc.

Participate in our redistribution drives: If your child has grown out of his clothes, shoes, toys, bags and other essential items which are still in good condition, there are always kids at AXF who could do with a little more.

L&T, Welspun  Renewable Energy & hosting citizen groups currently cover sponsorship of 700 out of the 1000 children we are working with in our Learning Center Program under their CSR spend;  Voltas Ltd sponsors the In-school English program under which AXF provides daily English lessons to 2500 students inside municipal schools.

We need regular sponsors for expenses incurred for the additional 300 children.

For a spend of approximately Rs. 8500 per annum per child, AXF works to ensure the following is delivered to the beneficiaries

  • Year round tutoring & mentoring by well-educated adults, trained and handheld by the AXF team to execute the planned curriculum
  • Work books, stationary and study material as needed
  • A daily nutrition supplement (fruit or a snack)
  • Clothes, shoes, toys, bags and other essential items sourced through regular redistribution drives
  • Fun and educational trips to movies, museum visits, play dates
  • Recycled learning opportunities through interactive opportunities with children from affluent schools
  • Engagement opportunities with corporate employees and site visits to help increase all around exposure and grooming
  • Talent enhancement opportunities through extracurricular classes. Treats emerging from celebrations which are encouraged across AXF centers
  • Medical and dental health checkups and treatment opportunities as well as counseling sessions covering a variety of issues
