KSS is committed to creating for children a healthy, happy life that offers them the opportunity to fulfil their myriad potential while enjoying life.

Our guiding motto is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children- being defined as any human being under the age of 18. They belong to all children irrespective of nationality, colour, religion, sex, social status etc. Among all human rights, child rights have been accorded the highest priority as children are our hope and promise for the future.

While we look at child rights in a broad perspective that includes quality, free education, public spaces that allow for free expression, an overall environment free from fear, ill behaviour and exploitation, enabling and supportive family structures; our focus areas have been care of new born, reduction in mother and child mortality, birth registration, total immunisation, mainstreaming of out of school children, life skills education, strengthening of School Management Committees and reduction in child malnutrition.

Till date, the organization has helped 6670 children access their rights to a just and happy life.
