Diwali is here and it’s time to give back to your community, and thus here’s an 88-year-old NGO called ASHI that you ought to know about! The Association for Social Health in India, commonly called ‘ASHI’, acts as a lifeline for the thousands of women and children seeking escape from a life of oppression and exploitation.
The main aim here is educating women and children in the city on various topics like Vocational Training in Technical Trades, Beauty Culture, Cutting & Tailoring and a lot more, which can help these people earn a living for themselves. They also aim at educating children and putting them on the path to a bright future and further juvenile guidance and counselling as well.
The team behind ASHI are definitely doing their beautiful bit in helping out people in need, but there’s a small way you can help as well!
