Dear Asha Patron,
“The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”
- C. S. “Jack” Lewis.
We agree. With our hallmark fund raising program – Work An Hour or WAH, as it is popularly known – we present you an opportunity to help an under privileged child in India reach his or her own bright future, whoever you are, whatever you do in your 60 minutes. Here, at Asha for Education, we ask you to participate in our unique WAH 2010 program, by symbolically working an hour towards the cause of children’s education and donating an hour’s worth or more of your salary.
In its 13th year, the WAH program has chosen 13 projects from all over India, after a thorough selection process with a focus on Overcoming Disabilities, Preventing Child Labor, and Bridging the Gap. For more information on these projects, please, click here
Per Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator, Asha For Education spends 98.4% of its funds raised on the programs. One of many criteria that has earned Asha for Education four out of four stars from Charity Navigator is its zero overhead policy – the less than 2% administrative expenses are covered with bank interest. So, every last cent of your donation goes directly to the projects sponsored. Please see Charity Navigator
As 2214 dreamy eyed children, supported by these 13 projects, are coloring their tirangas (flags) to celebrate India’s 64th Independence Day on August 15th, 2010, will you be their impetus to succeed? Please donate to bring hope through education.
