Asha Seattle would sponsor the costs of educating 20 special children. This sponsorship includes funds to provide for (a) practical skills and academic education; (b) therapies such as occupational, speech, music etc.)
The goal of V-Excel group can be summarized below:

We firmly believe that educated, literate and well-informed children are the building blocks of strong communities. We are committed to enriching the quality of education by ensuring right learning inputs to children across ability levels.

Our mission is to make a difference in the world of disability. We believe in human potential and its expression. Our emphasis is on education and its accessibility, regardless of caste, creed, race, religion and ethnicity. We educate and empower children with special needs to lead dignified, successful lives in the mainstream society.
V-Excel Educational Trust aspires to be a model school for mentally and developmentally challenged children. A multi-modal approach is used, where visual and tactile experiences had to be integrated into the method of instruction. The trust has teacher training programs that would help address the dearth of teacher training facilities for centers catering to the needs of special education.

In addition the group is also involved with the following activities:

A) Support groups for parents (called "Disha"): Regular meetings are organized by V-Excel, where experts from different related fields come in to talk to the parents. This helps them resolve queries in their mind about issues such as allopathy/alternative medicines and their long term impact on their children, dietary influences etc.
B) Workshops: V-Excel actively conducts workshops in regular schools for enhancing teacher’s understanding of special needs and ensuring early intervention and mainstreaming through timely attention.
C) In Villipuram district of Tamil Nadu, V-Excel conducts medical camps and help distribute assistive devices/equipment for visually impaired, hearing impaired and locomotor impaired persons. This is part of the Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan (SSA) scheme.
