Mission Statement

Asha Kiran is a secular organization based on the belief that education is the path to economic independence and strives to make this achievable to the lower socio-economic strata of the Indian society.

We believe that each of us can contribute in our own way towards the cause of education and make a child’s life more meaningful. Education, leading to employment is the key to a better future. There are millions of children around the world who have been handed a raw deal, maybe by simply being born into unfortunate circumstances. India alone has over 40 million children who do not go to school due to lack of books or clothes. Asha Kiran hopes to provide a platform for individuals who want to come forth and give these children a chance to improve their lives.

So join us in our effort to make this change happen.

Description

What we do
Asha Kiran's goal is to provide children from poor or deprived families the financial aid and moral support required to obtain their basic right to education. We firmly believe that the path to economic independence is through education, and further, that there are many around us who would willingly help. We aim to select suitable projects in India that will help reach our objectives. In turn, we will provide regular and detailed feedback to our sponsors about the effects of their sponsorship. This can include detailed profiles of the specific children, yearly report cards and updates about their progress and so on.

Who we are
Asha Kiran is an organization consisting purely of volunteer members who have come together to help raise awareness of the plight of the poor in India. None of the volunteers or members are paid for their work. They have been part of the organization as they share our guiding principle and obtain a sense of satisfaction from their work. Our name, which means "A Ray of Hope" and is shared by our first supported project in India, was chosen to convey the importance of an education for every single child.

Zero administrative costs
As we have no salaried employees any minimal administrative costs are borne by members or volunteers themselves. All donations made by sponsors go directly to deserving projects.
