Asha for Education is a worldwide charity focused on improving education of underprivileged children in India. We believe that the most effective means of social and economic development is through the education of children.
The London Chapter of Asha for Education (charity registration number: 1088168) was founded in 2000 and has been working with four project partners in India to improve education of underprivileged children by offering children a safe environment for acquiring basic literacy and vocational skills and by encouraging sustainable performance and alternative teaching methods
