Overview : School visit to 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.
The Wallace High School and The Royal School, Armagh are the most recent schools that have partnered with Asha and it is hoped as more schools become involved, the leaders will be able to share their resources through this website.
