Ashwathy has been a very good A grade student all her years. She even secured a good rank in T-cet inspite of her family being very poor. The family condition is so worse that eating two meals a day is more than enough since her father is a tinker who hardly earns couple of thousand rupees a month for the entire family to survive in a big city like Chennai. But against all these odds she was able to secure more than 90% in her 12th. When she secured good rank in T-cet 2005, she had no money to join engineering and approached Asha. Few volunteers from different chapters were able to chip in some amount to support her partially. For remaining fees, she took a personal loan from a money lender which is still due to pay. For the second year, she was able to raise some funds locally and Sangam Trust, based in hyderabad came forward to fulfill the rest of the need.
To bring the dreams of a girl to reality. Asha aims to support her education (partially or fully-based on the needs) till she finishes engineering.
Supported by Asha for Education and Sangam Trust:

Sangam Trust is formed by a group of NRIs who graduated from CBIT, affiliated to college of engineering, Osmania University. The goal of the organization is to support poor students by rewarding scholarships for their education be it elementary, high school or college level.
