Society for Women in Rural Development (SWIRD)
Since Asha’s involvement, the annual enrollment at SWIRD pre-primary schools has increased from 340 to 411 students. SWIRD counsels parents living in impoverished communities to educate their children (especially girls), prepares children for admission in primary schools, and also provides them medical care.
Remote Karnataka has hundreds of orphans and destitute children, many forced into child labor to feed themselves. Aralu Belaku, an orphanage, provides these children a home as well as pre- primary education with emphasis on IT. The organization needs your support to give these children a chance in the world.
Siragu Montessori School
Murugan was unaware of a life beyond begging in Chennai’s streets, until Siragu happened in 2003. He is now a science whiz eloquent in 3 languages, with dreams of becoming a doctor. With WAH’s support, Siragu can cater to over 400 Murugans by constructing stable classrooms and functional science labs.
