ASHA is dedicated to serving the needs of orphaned, abandoned and homeless. We assist in orphanages and homeless centres locally. We work to provide for the needs of these centres.


Our Mission 

  • We exist to love, serve and assist orphaned, abandoned and homeless people.
  • We direct donations and financial resources to assist orphans.
  • We pray that orphans’ lives will be changed, and that they will, as adults, serve their community to improve the lives of others.
  • We believe that the assistance we provide for now is only temporary means to their ends .We are striving to teach and help each one so that they are able to become independent and self supporting members of society.
  • Represent: warmth and sincerity, share the joy of giving, increase hope, educate and provide.


A typical home that we provide help has:

  • Orphans in a worn out facility
  • Affection-starved toddlers meandering around, each in need of a bath, clothes, shoes, love, help and parents.
  • Little children with little hope, but mostly normal, friendly, and curious - just without any real hope of what we would call a "normal life" or parents or a home.
  • Young teenagers
  • Few toys, books, games, or school supplies.
  • Very few learning activities due to the limited staff and unlimited demands on their time.
  • No grass, trees or flowers, no normal floors only dirt under their feet.

We would like to raise the spirit of humanity and harmony. To encourage and involve all sectors of society and develop a culture of giving and sharing.
