Mission Statement

Asha for Education's mission is to catalyze socioeconomic change in India through the education of underprivileged children.

Description

Asha primarily focuses on education in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. We collaborate with several non-governmental and governmental organizations in India to empower individuals and provide them with access to education, health care, equal opportunity, social justice etc. Asha for Education's interventions fall within the broad categories of community based interventions, disabilities, formal schools, non-formal education, supplemental education, fellowships, orphanages, residential schools, resource centers, and curriculum development to name a few. The objectives of this group are: To provide education to underprivileged children in India. To encourage the formation of various local groups across the world to reach out to larger sections of the population. To support and cooperate with persons and groups already engaged in similar activities. To raise the required human and other resources to achieve the group objectives. To provide opportunities to individuals living outside India who wish to participate in Asha activities in India. To address, whenever possible, other issues affecting human life such as health care, environment, socio-economic aspects and women's issues.
