with a mission to provide children from low-income communities with a high-quality education, enabling them to maximize their potential and transform their lives. Aashray works in the field of education, initiating school reform through The School Project, and providing supplemental education through its activity classes in PAN India.
A commitment is made to support each child by providing a strong educational foundation, good time, self-esteem and values, and to help them plan how they can earn a steady livelihood as a step towards improving their standard of living. Education is central to development and to the improvement of the lives of young people globally, and as such has been identified as a priority area in internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals and the World Programme of Action for Youth.
Its vision is to help people, feed them and provide them with the basic amenities. Aashray has also been working rigorously to break the social taboos associated with menstruation, body shaming, skin colour, etc. It has also come up with projects to combat mental health and to save the animals who are often abandoned by their owners or stay on streets in terrible conditions.

List of Achievements
The pandemic has changed the lives of many. The deprived class has suffered a lot. It even can’t afford the basic meals of a day because of loss of daily wage work in the lockdown. The street vendors, masons, daily wage workers, labourers, etc. are now confined to their homes and longing for a better life. Keeping this situation in mind, Aashray NGO has been conducting regular food drives since last year keeping in mind the norms of social distancing. The aim is to distribute food in the slum areas and bring a smile on at least one face. Till date, it has conducted food and ration drives in Panchkula, Chandigarh, Mohali, Karnal, Bangalore.
Aashray has created a volunteer program. We Involve and take students to community garden, fun events, talent shows, outings etc so that the students get involved in community activities, such as theatre, sports, community organizations, and dance etc. Giving students a looking glass into a future outside of poverty may be just enough to inspire them to achieve their heart’s desire.
Can providing our students with enriching experiences change the way they experience school and help them create a vision of life outside of poverty? At aashray we think it is absolutely possible, all we need to do is educate poor children.

FROM THE DESK OF M.D
Aashray NGO is led by Mr. Shane Bakshi who is a student and a businessman. Since childhood, he wanted to work for a social cause. He joined the NGO in 2015 and the rest is history.
According to Mr. Bakshi, “Helping others is our duty. Some are blessed with a lot and some are not. It is our responsibility to serve the ones who are in need. If we can’t be an ocean of change, we should try to be a drop of change in an entire ocean. Even this can do wonders.”
