About us

Asha for Education

Asha for Education was started in summer of 1991 by few students at the University of California, Berkeley. These young people shared the belief that education is a critical requisite and an effective catalyst for social and economic change in India. The group was named Asha to represent the hope that these individuals aimed to bring into the lives of children in India. In keeping with this focus, Asha volunteers get involved with and support projects that have an education-related component to
them.
The objectives of this group are:
To provide education to underprivileged children in India.
To encourage the formation of various local groups, both in India and U.S., to reach out to larger sections of the population.
To support and cooperate with individuals and groups already engaged in similar activities.
To raise the required human and other resources to achieve the group objectives.

We are a 100% volunteer driven organization with 50+ chapters worldwide. To learn more please go to www.new.ashanet.org
