Each year, people from around the world come together to help educate underprivileged children in India. Work An Hour, or WAH, is a summer-long, global, online fundraising campaign based on a simple concept - that every drop matters in furthering the future of children. So we ask that you symbolically donate an hour or more of your salary towards the cause of children's education.
Every two years, the volunteers of Asha congragate with experts in the field of education and social development to understand, learn and celebrate our cause.
