A new Study Centre at Savda

We are so delighted to share the good news that the school and college-going students in Savda Ghevra, Asha's resettlement colony on the outskirts of Delhi, now have their very own Study Centre. We sincerely thank Ballymena Builders from Northern Ireland, Asha's long-time supporter, for their unwavering dedication to making this dream a reality. We are immensely grateful for their committed efforts in constructing the Study Centre. Their support has brought a ray of hope to the students in Savda, providing them with a nurturing environment to pursue education and expand their horizons.

We would also like to extend a special thanks to Ms Rajwati, a Savda resident whose association with Asha and selfless act of providing the space for the centre exemplify the true spirit of community and compassion. Her support has played a crucial role in creating this educational haven for the students. She has been a part of Asha as an active community health volunteer at the Thokar No- 8 slum colony at the Yamuna Riverbed. When the residents were displaced in 2006 for the Commonwealth Games 2010, around 3000 families, including Rajwati, could secure land of their own in Savda with the support of Dr Kiran and Asha's team after a 2-month-long persuasion with the Government authorities.

We hope the Study Centre becomes a platform for empowering the students of Savda, ensuring they have access to quality education.
