We (Asha for Education) work towards education of underprivileged children in India. We partner with local NGOs in India that work on similar areas, and support their work through fundraising. We have regular conference calls and presentations of their projects to learn and understand their work, and sometimes visit them in India. We also train for various races, organize fundraising events, and lot of other fun activities. We're mostly students from the University of Florida, but our group is open to anyone who wants to make a difference. More details on our projects and activities are available on our website: http://www.ashanet.org/uflorida/

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
