Asha - Work an Hour

Asha for Education's Work An Hour event brings people from all over the world together to help educate underprivileged children in India. The event kicks off on July 4th every year, peaks on August 15th and concludes on September 5th. 15th of August, Indias Independence Day, is the symbolic date chosen for this phenomenal coming together of the human spirit.  
The event peaks around August 15th, India's Independence day. This year, we aim to receive contributions from at least 4000 donors, which would imply a minimum of million visitors. A large percentage of these visitors will be interested in the services your website has to offer.  Please support them by visiting
