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.
