Asha Atlanta’s Support a Child Project: Lok Chetna Samiti

Lok Chetna Samiti (LCS) is an innovative inter-religious common venture for community building at the grassroots level. Since its inception in 1994, it has been working for gender equality, gender justice, empowering women through socio economic awareness and organizing them against atrocities and injustice against women.

A Spain based NGO funded the construction of a hostel building for the girls which was inaugurated in July 2017. Asha for Education funds the cost of the day-to-day operations of the girls’ hostel.
