Making the under-privileged of our society self-sufficient is certainly the fulcrum of our activities, but immediate humanitarian aid ranks high on our agenda as well. Arrangement of medical, social and psychological services, material support, vocational training and information initiatives etc. have been a regular part of our curriculum over the years.
There may be myriad definitions of empowerment. But for us, at Aastha Foundation, true empowerment stems from making someone self-sufficient.
At Aastha, counselling to underprivileged people, especially women and girls, is a method to bring self-sufficiency in their lives.
The definition of welfare at Aastha lies in being the effective method to expand deprived people's ability to have resources and to make vital life-choices.
