A Brief Philosophy
ASHA means hope. Providing hope is our purpose.
To provide hope in all aspects of life by supporting initiatives that are run by the people of Nepal for the people of Nepal.
Guided by our three pillars, we will support projects that inspire hope for the people of Nepal.
A Brief Story
The Asha Project was formally launched in response to the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal that left millions homeless.
In March 2016, we traveled to Nepal with the goal to rebuild these homes.
When we visited a rebuilding project, we spoke with community leaders and non-profit leaders and they told us that they were interested in community development opportunities to impact their lives.
The Three Pillars Of Our Organization
For a stronger family
Assist in the re-building homes and schools.
For a prosperous future
Provide $100,000 in micro-credit loans to grow micro-businesses.
For a bright future
Provide $100,000 in scholarships for under-represented ethnic groups.
Providing hope and opportunities for the children of Nepal
ASHA is the Nepali word for “HOPE.” When we think about what motivates us to serve, we are drawn to this word, which is the name of our project. To us, hope and opportunity are really at the core of the Rotary’s mission. Trying to provide hope and opportunities to people in Nepal who are less fortunate than us.
