Asha's Mission


The Asha Community Health and Development Society was conceived in 1988 in response to the acute and distressing needs of the urban poor in New Delhi. Now 18 years later, with a vision to love and serve the poor in the name and spirit of Christ, the Asha family has grown to encompass over 300,000 people living in 46 slum colonies. With clear vision, focused goals, articulated objectives and well-implemented interventions, Asha reaches out to slum dwellers in Delhi to bring about a holistic and lasting improvement in their lives through the empowerment of individuals and communities and through raising their health standards and the conditions in which they live. Alongside tending to the physical needs of the slum dwellers, Asha also seeks to proclaim the good news of Christ through words and action and is seeing many people come to faith in Jesus Christ; small slum churches are being established within the slums as many testify to the love, faithfulness and goodness of God in their daily lives.
