NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Asha Chennai has been supporting about 100 government schools in rural backward areas of Tamilnadu and recently also 6 schools in UP. Because of the economic downturn, two of our major corporate donors stopped their funding. We need to raise funds to continue our work. Support Asha Chennai.
Note that Asha Chennai works on very low overheads and these overheads are entirely covered by Asha volunteers ourselves. Your entire donation minus the payment gateway charges will be used for our project expenses.Donate to us
