Overview: School visit to Asha
Friends of Asha Ireland was set up to raise awareness of and funds for Asha in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It can collect Gift Aid on donations from UK taxpayers, and supports groups of volunteers interested in spending time working with Asha
If your school is thinking of becoming involved with the Asha community, this website is where you will find the resources to guide you step by step through the organisational details of a visit to the Asha slum colonies in New Delhi.
In my role as Schools’ coordinator, I am indebted to Methodist College, Belfast, Ballymena Academy and Rainey Endowed School, Magherafelt for their contributions to this website. These schools have led several successful trips and they wish to share the resources they have built up over the years with other leaders.
A project of this kind is organised over the course of a school year and I have arranged the material in chronological order based on how it has been planned in the three aforementioned schools.
It is hoped as more schools become involved, future leaders can also share their resources with others through this website.
