Asha for Education is a global organization that is committed to community service focused on facilitating education for underprivileged children overseas. Asha supports a wide variety of projects, and the Asha Athens chapter currently helps fund two specific projects. The first project is a school in Maharastra called Sandnya Sanwardhan Sanstha, which is an institute dedicated to serve mentally disabled children. Another ongoing project is a book bank in West Bengal that strives to provide educational assistance to the needy students from rural and urban areas. All donations and funds raised from this event will go towards the Asha cause by providing textbooks for children and helping them obtain an education and other resources.
