About Asha For Education:
Asha for Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of basic education in India. Asha, which means hope in many Indian dialects, was founded at the University of California, Berkeley in 1991 and has since grown to over 66 chapters scattered throughout the United States, Europe, East Asia and India. Each of these chapters raises funds to support various education-related projects in India.
Asha Stanford was founded in the fall of 1992 by a group of students who understood the importance of education and the need to provide such opportunities for the underprivileged. Today, the chapter draws members from a diverse group of students from Stanford University as well as Bay Area professionals. The aim of the group is to mobilize the Bay Area community to collectively support and provide financial assistance to grass-roots educational movements in India. Members of Asha Stanford attempt to maintain a close personal involvement with the organizations and projects which are funded. To maximize the effectiveness of our efforts, the group selects diverse projects. Asha Stanford works closely with other Asha chapters to ensure quality support is provided to educational efforts in India. Visit http://www.ashanet.org/ for details
