About Asha Seattle
Asha for Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing about socio-economic change in India primarily through education. We pride ourselves on being an action group that keeps the administrative expenses to 3% and disburses 97% of donations to our partner groups in India.
Seattle chapter of Asha, formed in December 1994, actively supports development initiatives in health care and livelihood, care for people with special needs, and gender issues in addition to education related projects. We are one of the largest of Asha’s 46 chapters worldwide, stewarding 32 of Asha’s 180 grassroots partner projects across India and providing 20% of Asha’s annual donations alone.
We look forward to your support in realizing our mission.
