AROH works towards Education for All and promotes child rights, thereby lifting thousands of children from the state of misery and scarcity to a position of dignity and happiness. AROH helps children to get the knowledge and life skills they need to realise their full cognitive potential.
Education is one of the most powerful tools in breaking the cycle of poverty. Padho aur Badho is AROH's pioneering effort in collaboration with GAIL India, to provide education opportunities to deprived children in urban slums. So far we have reached out to 30,000 poor and out-of-school children living in urban slums.

AROH runs various programmes for economic empowerment of poverty-stricken rural and urban youth in various states under the schemes of government of India and corporate social responsibility initiatives. AROH works with communities to ensure that families in extreme poverty have the skills they need to increase their income. We have designed programmes like UDAAN and UTKARSH with an objective of enhancing the skill sets of poor people for different income-driven trades, such as agriculture, farm and non-farm, IT and ICT, Hospitality, Sales and Retail and textiles and garments, manufacturing industry workers, etc.
AROH Foundation implements Government of India's SGSY Programme for livelihood opportunities and job-placement for BPL rural youth and women through Public-Private Partnership Approach and attempts to bridge the ever-widening divide between those who have access to opportunities and those who are increasingly being marginalized from the new jobs in the new economy.
The on-going project envisages socio-economic transformation of the underprivileged youth & women from a status of unemployment and vulnerability to a product of employability in the market. It aims to create opportunities to the disadvantaged youth & women in rural areas for quality flexible skills training and placement services in consonance with the employers needs and demands and prepare them for new economic jobs.

AROH Foundation has been successfully conducting various community development programmes in health sector which include the operation of a mobile health van for poor and disadvantaged in the slums of Delhi and NOIDA, awareness generation activities health camps, vaccination programmes, etc.
Our health interventions works for reproductive and child health, aiming to reduce maternal, neonatal and child mortality. Its aim is to improve overall immunization coverage, raise awareness about the indispensable role played by routine immunization in protecting a community's health, improve the quality of emergency obstetric care and promote an integrated management of early childhood illnesses. We work to support the existing community health facilities.
Gender mainstreaming is of special concern to us. Due to their lower social status, girls are far more at risk of malnutrition than boys their age. Partly as a result of this cultural bias, up to one third of all adult women in India are underweight. The project seeks to provide the healthcare facilities to girl children and to create awareness about equal status and facilities for both girls and boys.
