At the foundation, we believe that education is the founding stone of any progressive society and nation. The future of any nation truly depends on how educated it’s children are.
In India, the right to education act makes education a fundamental right of each child. With this belief and to support the government in this act, the foundation has established Asha centers across villages in the country, Like the name “Asha:” meaning hope suggests, these centers cater to the remedial educational needs of the children going to government schools in the villages, they are set up giving them the hope and direction to a better future. In addition to education, these centers also undertake various extra-curricular activities covering sports, music, art, good habits, health and hygiene that helps in developing the overall personality of these students.
The teachers at these centers are appointed from within the village after a recruitment process that involves knowledge and teaching skill set assessment and includes a one-week teaching skill facilitation by a competent foundation volunteer.
“The Asha centers have a dual impact. Not only do we create an inclination to study amongst the local children, we also create jobs for the local women.”
The students are assessed twice in a session by using written as well as oral exam methodologies and a full track of their progress is maintained.
At the heart of each Asha center, lies the core of providing sustainable, inclusive and progressive growth and development. Come be a part of our journey of hope.
125 Asha centres running in 85 villages of Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Currently, More than 3000+ underprivileged government school students are provided remedial education in these centers.
Education not only empowers but with learning we are able to build a stronger and happier future.
