Support A Child – Enrich a Life
This program makes it possible for an individual to sponsor the cost of education or total living expense for one underprivileged child in India. The aim is to support this child financially till he completes college or vocational education and is able to support himself. You can become a sponsor for a child in India for as little as $12 a month.

Asha’s role is to find a suitable education project run by a non profit organization in India which targets children who are unable to pursue education due to lack of funds. Then Asha endeavors to find sponsors for the children in this project and facilitates linking sponsors with individual children. Asha follows through by disbursing and monitoring the sponsors’ funds. It works with both sponsors and the projects in India to obtain regular progress reports of the children and build a strong sponsor-child communication. The sponsor has the opportunity to become a mentor and friend to his sponsored child by writing letters. The sponsor can also arrange a visit with his child through Asha and the project coordinators in India.
Currently this program is being run by several Asha chapters. This program is solely meant for individual donors to be directly connected to a child at an Asha supported project. Asha for Education is not involved with any adoption process through this program.
The table below gives a brief description of the type of projects the sponsored children belong to. For more details you can visit each of the chapter sites. Becoming a sponsor is easy! To begin your sponsorship today, all you have to do is fill out the sign-up forms available at each of the chapter websites found below.
