Ashaa Foundation addresses gaps in education systems with innovative, low-cost, replicable interventions that span the age spectrum. Working both directly and through government systems, these programs collectively reach thousand of children and more two hundren of school dropouts each year. In “direct” work, aAshaa instructor works with children either in the school or in the community, whereas the “partnership” model involves Ashaa teams working closely with government teams at the state, district or city level to design and implement programs.
