Providing good quality education from primary classes to professional courses for the children of Army personnel is a prime welfare activity conducted under the aegis of AWES headquartered at New Delhi.
 
AWES is already running 11 professional colleges in various disciplines such as medical, dental, fashion design, hotel management, engineering, management, nursing, education, law  etc and 137 Army Public Schools with the aim of providing quality education at affordable cost.
