Asha for Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of basic education and various social causes in India.
One of the Asha run projects: GRAVIS is very close to my heart. I am targeting to raise $1000 for the GRAVIS project to help the health and education support for extremely poor and underprivileged, especially young girls and women, who struggle on a regular basis just to survive on the scarcest of natural resources in the drought-ridden state of Rajasthan in India.
Rajasthan, where gender disparity, coupled with rampant droughts, ensure that little attention is paid to girls’ education . Girls often drop out to help increase household income or take over domestic responsibilities. They have to travel long distances to fetch water or firewood during droughts. Women too, are busy all day – collecting fuel wood, water and fodder. Further, the dry conditions and lack of water lead to severe health challenges, especially ones affecting women and children.
