Dear Friends of the Asha Project,
When the earthquake hit Nepal in April of 2015, many lives were affected. Not only did people lose their homes, businesses, and livelihoods – many people lost their families. This is what happened with three sisters we helped. After their father passed away, their mother left them because they did not have male family member. The earthquake destroyed their home, and these three courageous sisters were left with nowhere to live, no family, and a community in ruins. When we heard of this story, we at The Asha Project decided to do something about it.
With the help of the local Rotary organization and individuals like you, we raised the money to finance and provide manpower to build a new home for them. We also gave them 8 goats, which gave them the opportunity to make a continual income.
They are now able to live in a secure home and have a renewed hope for their future. Successful projects like this drive us to do more for the people of Nepal!
You can help us bring hope to the people of Nepal! Your support is crucial to our mission, and we could not do it without the help from our caring community.
Nearly 5 years after the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in April of 2015, there is still so much work that needs to be done. Homes still need to be rebuilt, communities are left without school houses, and many families are left without hope. While we are actively working on projects to provide the poor people of Nepal with education, safe homes, and opportunities for them to build continual income with our micro credit project, we need your help to make our efforts go even further!
You can be the change this world so desperately needs. Your gift greatly contributes to the foundation that these families need to truly live to their full potential. Please, take the step and make a lasting impact with a small donation of $50.
By not buying one cup of coffee a week, the contribution you can make to The Asha Project can provide a whole year’s worth of school supplies, the fees and uniform costs for a child to attend school, or the means to help families provide continual income for years to come. Please be a part of our mission with your generous monthly donation of $5, $10, or any other amount you are able.

It is amazing how a short, four letter word can represent so much. ASHA means HOPE in Nepali, and that is our purpose.
I would like to personally thank you for being a part of that. Your donation will certainly go a long way towards giving hope and opportunities to the children and families of Nepal! Thank you, for your contribution.
