ACTT aims to bring a change in their children by giving them a self sufficient and dignified life in the society.

When the person becomes child sponsor he/she will receive the details of the child along with child‘s background and the present day performance of the child through letters. Further Mr. Chandan Das says “the maximum age limit of keeping a child in this NGO is till their graduation.” All the children here have their medical insurance and get medical checkups by a child specialist at regular intervals. All children are from West Bengal and nearby areas. ACTT expansion programmes include:

ACTT gives importance to extracurricular activities in every child’s life. It includes dance training, drawing classes, football coaching, spoken English classes and the like. These children also celebrate different events like New Year party, Saraswati Puja, Basanta Utsab, Rabindranath Tagore’s Birthday, Independence Day, Annual Sports day and many more. Children’s are also taken to picnics and excursions during holidays. After talking to these children one can find out how determined and dedicated they are for their future.
