Who we are
Transforming lives in the slums of Delhi
Asha has been transforming lives in the slums of Delhi since 1988.
Asha was founded by Dr Kiran Martin, a paediatrician, who observed first-hand, the devastating conditions in which the urban poor live while responding to a cholera outbreak in one of Delhi’s slums. Currently, Asha works in over 90 slums across Delhi, serving over 900,000 slum dwellers.
Asha has developed a strong track record in improving the lives of the urban poor and as a result, has won the respect and support of government ministers in India and around the world.
Asha believes that the key to tackling the poverty cycles lies in educated, healthy, empowered individuals who are able to transcend their personal circumstances and transform their own lives, and those of their families and ultimately their communities.
Asha achieves this by enabling people to transform their healthcare, education, environment and finances of their own community.
Thank you so much for your kind donation. Every penny transforms lives in the slums of Delhi. Asha is working relentlessly towards bringing holistic development in the urban slums of Delhi. We’ll ensure that whatever you have donated will be put to the best possible use and give even more people hope for a better future.
Words can't express how thankful we are for your support.
