BENEFITING: Asha for Education

Anshul Gupta

THE STORY:

About Asha For Education: Asha for Education is a secular organization dedicated to change in India by focusing on basic education in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. Visit their website at: http://www.ashanet.org/

Project SEA: The project caters to the tsunami affected coastal areas of Mahabalipuram near Chennai, India, where the main population consists of fishermen/salt pan workers and "dalit" farmers. SEA works with the government schools and supplements teachers in remote villages and conducts motivational centers after school to both encourage the students and employ more teachers from the local community. The model seems to work well, because the budget is not too high and the community benefits with existing schools and infrastructure.

Currently, SEA is looking for funds to cover two more villages (the cost of covering a village is about US$3,000, or INR 1,30,000.00). Visit their website at:

Instructions for donating are on the link above (in comments, please mention "Anshul - Marathon Fund Raiser" so I can track progress). Note: you can also use the "donate" button on this website, and funds will be transferred to Asha, but there is a 7.5% processing/other fee involved (so only $92.5 of every $100 you donate goes to Asha project SEA).

Thanks for your kind support!
