Blood donation camps and health check-up camps are its integral parts which are done regularly. Donation and plantation drives are also among its annual activities. Along with these the volunteers are involved in various sensitization and awareness programs.

They devote 2 hours daily to nurture and polish the reading, writing, speaking, arithmetic and other skills of the children of the slum and a significant improvement has been marked.
With an objective to bring a positive change in the lives of children, Connecting Dreams Foundation- ARSD Chapter began its initial journey by adopting the SDMC Primary School. They set up a library there and conducted various reading and games sessions for children to improve their reading and communication skills along with making them aware of the benefits of physical activities. They also strive to fulfill the dreams of these kids by conferring them the small things that they wish for.
