Each year volunteers from around the world come together in a show of great human spirit to help educate underprivileged children and support other social causes in India. Under the Work An Hour program, we ask you to symbolically contribute one hour of your time by donating an hour's worth of your salary or more. Read about the 2008 WAH program that raised over $120,000 for education and social programs in India.

*Why Bhopal?*
On December 3rd, 1984, thousands of people in Bhopal, India, were gassed to death after a catastrophic chemical leak at a Union Carbide pesticide plant. More than 23,000 people have died as a result. Few know that the company responsible has never been held accountable and that it has allowed its derelict factory to poison the drinking water of 25,000 people in Bhopal.




In September 2007, ASHA Boston/MIT sponsored a night of Indian classical music, featuring Sri Ramakrishnan Murthy who was accompanied by K.V.S. Vinay on the Violin and Sri. Pravin Sitaram on the Mridangam




An integral part of the experience of working with Asha is knowing that you are part of a community of committed people working toward social change.In the spring of 2007, volunteers organized a social evening of food, fun and games.



Indian Independence Day

Asha showed a strong presence at the Hatchshell in Boston during Indian Independence Day Festivities sponsored by the Indian Association of Greater Boston. A great venue to spread the Asha spirit to the New England community on a nice summer day amidst song, dance and patriotism.
