Asha Silicon Valley, a chapter of Asha for Education, is a completely volunteer driven organization, comprising of dedicated individuals from the Area, striving to make a difference to the society. We believe that education is one of the primary factors in shaping a child’s future and by extension, future of the entire country.
Asha Silicon Valley works towards promoting the education of underprivileged children in India by providing financial assistance and support to the NGOs focused on education projects. Volunteers of Asha work closely with the project partners in India, while locally organizing fundraisers and community awareness events. Team Asha training program, a popular event in the Area, is Asha Silicon Valley’s primary fundraiser, which directly helps support several education projects in India.

We funded a school bus for the benefit of the children at Shakthidhama, Mysuru in June 2019. The bus ensures safe transportation of children to and from the school [more so due the background of these children]. The bus also enabled the children to join a good school farther away since the previous school had no functioning toilets or classrooms.
Shakthidhama is a women’s rehabilitation center in existence for over 20 years. Recently they have rehabilitated 154 girl children from perilous backgrounds who are being accommodated in their campus at the Chamundi foothills, Mysore.
