Shanmuga, an Asha-Princeton volunteer, returned to India, and in the first year after his return, visited over 80 projects in India to understand and evaluate Asha's impact through its projects. His reports and feedback were (and continue to be) an invaluable experience for all Asha volunteers. It has helped us improve our work. Funds for his work were all volunteer contributions.
The goal was to see what exactly our projects are doing, and what exactly we are achieving.
