CAF India initiated the 'Support My School Campaign' from 2010 to 2014 with the support of Coca-Cola, UN-Habitat, Pearson Foundation, Tata Teleservices, HCCBPL, Global Water Challenge (Merck), and H20 for Life. The campaign was designed to intervene on the poor conditions of schools in India, including, lack of water, poor sanitation (toilet facilities) and hygiene, ill-equipped sports infrastructure and landscaping. The overriding goal of the campaign was to ensure that schools have affordable access to water and sanitation facilities which will catalyze improvements in child health, learning achievement, and productivity, especially that of the girl child. The campaign also aligned with the Millennium Development Goals and targets reducing the number of of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by half, by 2015.

The nationwide campaign brought together the expertise and resources of 11 donors, over 50 institutional partners revitalizing 364 schools and touching the lives of approximately 1 lac children. The campaign is spread across 17 states.
