About the NGO
The biggest disease is not leprosy, but rather the feeling of being unwanted. Especially, when children are the victims of something that is not their fault. Maharashtra in the late 1970s was affected with Leprosy. The kids of these affected were shunned. A couple approached Social Scientist, Dr. Gokhale expressing their distress about the discrimination of their kids. Being a social scientist, Dr. Gokhale understood the importance of family.
He considered their request and began to identify donors who are ready to sponsor the education of these children. This led to the establishment of Community Aid and Sponsorship Program (CASP) in 1976. CASP slowly shaped into a national voluntary organization by supporting underprivileged children and communities. It provides sponsorship & aid for education, health, and nutrition. Mr. Pramod Kale the president of CASP has been working in the field of Community Education and Development for a very long time. His work has been recognized with Padmashree in 1984 and Aryabhatta Award in 2006 of the Astronautical Society of India.
With a mission to diversify and strengthen its organizational competency, CASP leads in developing and implementing strategies and programs. These programs enhance the capacities of children, families, and communities through empowerment, participation, and advocacy.
