“It’s my first visit to India and had a great experience here to learn how the Ashram works on different areas like education and donation drives. I learn about the values behind the work and the most important is interacting with the girls from Ashayein and get to know how education is important for girls? I learned how to care about the people who are in real need. We plan to organise fund raising events and others to spread our experience and eager to come again to meet people here,” said Isabel Lane.
Ashayein is a project aimed at identifying the underprivileged girls and financially support their education. This year Anand Ashram is supporting 150 such girls.
The student delegation actively take part in the various activities run by the ashram and also celebrate the festival of Dhuleti with them.
