ASHA Welfare Society is a registered non-profit organization conceived with the goal of improving literacy and education among less-privileged children in Uttar Pradesh. We work to instill in a child the curiosity to learn and to give him or her the key to the greatest pool of knowledge out there - The Internet - by suitably augmenting school curriculum.
We transfer four sets of practical skills to these children: computer and internet usage; language and communication skills, particularly in English; current and social affairs awareness; and personality development. The first of these, Computers and the Internet, lies at the core of our effort, and is used to drive the other three. These four skills, we believe, will give them a base of tools and help the children understand, identify, and access opportunity for themselves.
ASHA Welfare Society reaches out to about 600 children through 12 centres around Uttar Pradesh. We have over 50 regular volunteer members (drawn from our volunteer pool of over 300 members). We use netbooks, laptops, and the Internet as teaching tools and resources, even as we teach children the skills needed to use them.
