Association for Social Health in India (ASHI) is a Voluntary and Social Organization aiming at challenging those conditions that lead to exploitation of women and children for anti-social purposes. The Association is registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 (No. 2558 dated 24.06.1996)
Provision of shelter for Destitute & Orphan children and arranging for their education, vocational training and rehabilitation are one of the Association’s main activities.
The children do very well in studies and quite a few of them have had high divisions and won scholarships. Our Chief Patron, the Governor of Haryana, visits the Home once a year to encourage and bless the children. The Board of Management is constituted of volunteers. ‘Ashiana’ means ‘Nest’, a shelter prepared with tender, loving care where nestlings are fed and cared for by birds till they are able to fly themselves and leave the nest. Our Ashiana is a shelter for destitute and orphan children run by the Association for Social Health in India, Haryana State Branch. This home has been in existence since 1982 and was lodged in rented accommodation. In 1993, the Government of Haryana was pleased to give the Association a piece of land measuring 1000 square meters on concessional rates. It was then that Fund Raising Drive was instituted towards constructing a Home of our own for the children. With the generosity of our donors, we have been able to complete the first and second phase of our project and are today the proud owners of a home where we can accommodate 50 children.
