ASHA NewsLetter:  
Asha-LA invites you to read our winter newsletter (attached). Newsletters are windows to the activities and methods of Asha for Education and the current edition contains updates from two projects written by volunteers who have been associated with them for several years. The Basera-e-Tabassum project supports hostels for orphan children in violence hit areas of Jammu and Kashmir. The Street-to-school project aims to bring street children in the Kalighat area in Kolkata out of slums through education. In addition, the newsletter reports on a very successful 5k run that we organized in September'08, and plan to repeat this year.

A fun fact: Slumdog Millionaire's little Salim and Latika are first grade students at an Asha funded school in Bandra maintained by our partner Aseema.
