Hope has the power to move people. Hope has changed the course of history, and millions of lives. The magic of hope is what we are looking to spread here with the ASHA PROJECT. Using our three pillars, HOMES OF HOPE, RAYS OF HOPE, and LEGACY OF HOPE, we are determined to spread the idea of a brighter, more prosperous, and stronger future for poor people in Nepal.
THE ASHA PROJECT was originally founded in 2015 in response to the Nepal earthquake which left thousands dead and millions homeless, but our mission extended much before that. Starting from a small $500 donation in 1992, we have provided thousands of dollars in scholarships and have helped build places of hope such as science labs, computer labs, libraries, and water projects. In addition to that, we have loaned more than $150,000 in micro credit loans in Nepal, along with countless donations of school supplies.
We have invested more than million dollars in various humanitarian grant projects to help people of Nepal. Your donation is matched 5 times by the Rotary Foundation matching grants.
Almost as important as hope, is the importance of education. It is every child’s right to receive an education, which in turn increases hope. ASHA PROJECT has distributed thousands of pens, pencils, notebooks and books to symbolize opportunity. The power of learning and information creates the leaders of tomorrow.
To this day, THE ASHA PROJECT has been persistent in spreading the message of hope to everyone. This is our biggest ambition, and we will work to break down the barriers and spread the idea of hopefulness and optimism to everyone across Nepal. Thank you for your continued support.
It is amazing how a short, four letter word can represent so much. ASHA means HOPE in Nepali, and that is our purpose to provide hope and opportunities for poor families in Nepal.Dr. Tulsi R. Maharjan
