I’m Siddharth, this year in July I will be biking from Seattle to Portland (over 200 miles). This is my first year participating in this organized ride.
I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness about the wonderful work undertaken by “Asha – for education”. What began as an effort to provide basic education to underprivileged children throughout India, has grown into an effort to provide a better foundation for local communities to combat the perils of illiteracy, poverty, and exploitation. Asha has touched the lives of thousands of children, and their families, providing them with tools and means of empowerment. Learn more about projects by Asha on Ashanet.
Why Asha for Education? Asha is a “minimal overhead” organization, driven by volunteers (including the administrative expenses) ensuring that more than 95% of your donations are sent to our partner groups in India. Asha for Education has consistently secured a 100% rating on Charity Navigator, a well-established database that evaluates non-profit organizations on the basis of transparency, accountability and financial parameters.
