Overall, the audience enjoyed a well organized cultural show. Well done Team Asha Purdue and all the individual performers and groups (Purdue Taal, Purdue Roobaroo, Purdue Indian dance Club, IWA kids, Purdue Boilermakers). Details of all the performances and performers can be found here . A big Thank You to all the performers and volunteers. Pictures can be found here while videos will be updated soon.

Your help and support made the event a huge success. Asha Purdue projects need your help and support. Help us in raising funds by participating in Work an Hour campaign.

This year, Asha Purdue’s project Diksha KHEL, is part of Work An Hour Campaign, where we ask you to symbolically donate one hour of your salary or more for the education of underprivileged children in India. Diksha- KHEL not only helps children acquire basic literacy but also focuses on holistic learning so that they grow intellectually and not just mechanically as often happens in cases of schools/institutions serving the underprivileged. And one of the chief goals is the ‘mainstreaming’ of children into government schools whereby the organization continue to support students- often first generation school students- attending government primary school by offering classes before/after school hours.

Please make sure when you donate to select Purdue as your chapter affiliation and project as Diksha KHEL from pull down menu. One way to maximize your impact is to avail of company matching. Find out today and contact us if your company will supplement your donation.

Chase Community Giving Program: Vote For “Asha for Education”

Asha for Education is participating in ongoing Chase Community Giving Program. Your one click can help Asha for Education in winning $500,000 which will be used for education of underprivileged community in India. Voting ends tomorrow, May 25th. Do Vote!

Chase Community Giving
Here is the BigIdea about How Asha will use funds if it wins $500,000:

Asha For Education is dedicated to driving socio-economic change in India through education of the underprivileged. With over 270 million illiterates and over 370 million below the poverty line, a large section of the population reaps very little benefit from the ongoing economic boom. We believe that education is a critical first step towards bringing the underprivileged into mainstream. Over 20 years, we have served tens of thousands of children in the lowest socio-economic strata of society through 400 project partners and 73 worldwide chapters. We would use $250K to start a “rural entrepreneurship” initiative that would help 750 people in rural India start and operate small businesses through a customized “mini-MBA” program. We would use the other $250K to start a “Vocational education” initiative that complements our formal education efforts. We will help 3,000 graduates find skilled jobs through career guidance and training in computer skills and spoken English.
