All great ideas begin with a commitment to the future. It is with a strong commitment to the quest for excellence in the field of social work.ASHA Welfare Society has been working in the field of child education, health, livelihood and women empowerment.

This would help them to become not only good person, but also conscientious human beings and responsible citizens Our motto exemplifies the fact that academic excellence should go parallel with human excellence.

To meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world,ASHA Welfare Society has markedly involved since its establishment. We offer a growing array of programs to prepare you for careers and further education, enjoying environment which is highly conducing for development.
Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one's rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
Doubtless, education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. But child education cannot be done in isolation. A child will go to school only if the family, particularly the mother, is assured of healthcare and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.
Realizing this, Asha Welfare Society an NGO in India, beginning in the corridors of education, adopted a lifecycle approach of development, focusing its interventions on children, their families and the larger community.
Asha Welfare Society believes that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. Following this model of Civic Driven Change, Asha Welfare Society sensitizes and engages the civil society, making it an active partner in all its welfare initiatives.
Today, 8 million children in India are out of school – surrounded by poverty, illness and despair they are fighting a daily battle for their survival. Together, we can help a child and bring hope in their lives. Together, we can bring change and make it last.
