ASHA - Activities & Beneficiaries
Working Philosophy & Activities
“It is only with great fortune and immense grace of God that you got the opportunity to serve the ignorant, diseased and suffering humanity. If you dedicate yourself completely in a selfless way, you realize the unlimited power within you.”
- Swami Vivekananda
Under ASHA Project, Regular HEALTH CLASS is conducted once a week by Voluntary Health Teachers (the Home Makers or Housewives) in Corporation / Government aided economically challenged schools adopted by OASIS. The aim is to help the adolescents to inculcate certain HEALTH HABITS that facilitate them to adopt a healthy life style right from when they are maturing preventing many diseases later in life; and to empower adolescents with basic knowledge about BODY and MIND enabling them to handle a wide variety of choices, challenges and stressors so that they can live a healthy, joyful and meaningful life.
