Bidding Adieu to the Australian Deputy High Commissioner to India, Chris Elstoft.

Bidding Adieu to the Australian Deputy High Commissioner to India, Chris Elstoft.

“The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service”- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This quote stands so apt for our wonderful supporter, Mr Chris Elstoft, Australian Deputy High Commissioner to India, who has been actively and wholeheartedly involved in Asha’s cause for many years now.

Mr Elstoft has strengthened the bond and relationship between Australian High Commission and Asha’s 15 years of long-standing association by hosting two consecutive launches of Asha’s Internship Programme in the Australian High Commission. This programme gives an opportunity to our students from slums enter the professional world.

As we bid farewell to Mr Elstoft with a heavy heart at Asha’s Kanak Durga slum community yesterday, we made sure he spent some quality time with Asha Ambassadors, where he encouraged the students saying ‘’Your situation shows you have determination. Your life experiences are very different because you face challenges every day. You have inside you the recipe of success. May you enjoy this journey and I wish you all the success in your relationships and career.’’

On behalf of Dr Kiran Martin and the whole Asha team we thank Mr Chris Elstoft for his unconditional support and wish him the very best for his future. You will always stay close to our hearts and we hope that our relationship lasts a lifetime.
