An Appeal

Dear Friends,

I have been associated with schools all my life. I have seen the best of students and best of schools. My heart cries to fact, that in few years I would have to part from this formal structure of education, which has made me proud as a teacher all my life. I have been best of students who have come up from worst of situation. Being closely attached to schools that are in villages I have longed to help the children from rural area. I take this opportunity to invite you all in this struggle for coaching out the unreach.

Kindly come forward to help us in terms of material, funds, any innovation ideas that can build our self-sustaining capacity. We are open to all the as well as suggestions to improve our way of practice to help the disadvantaged. I would like to thank all the well wishes of Asha Dham for working Asha Dham a way of hope in the life’s of those where there’s been darkened age long.


Thanking You,
Emmanuel Mosses

Volunteer experience of Nicola Rudkin

Nicola Rudkin from Darlington was a GAP Volunteer at the Bal Asha Trust in Bombay / Mumbai.

“My duties were very general, and mostly based on a ward of older children, rather than babies, aged between 1 and 14. Dressing; feeding; playing; helping with English and other schoolwork; drawing and colouring; reading. I also accompanied them on many visits and took some children to the hospital. I spent some time caring for the babies, playing and feeding them. Sometimes I talked to adoptive parents from all over the world. I just helped out where I was needed. Our hours were totally optional, but we found we wanted to give as much time as possible, even some weekends!

It is hard adjusting, but everyone, even people who cannot speak your language, makes such an effort to make you feel welcome, it soon feels like home - which I hadn't expected.

I think you gain many skills, most of which you don't even realise you're using, like tolerance, patience, understanding and improvisation.

I'm starting a degree in Nursing, now I simply feel more ready, and I've opened my mind to so many experiences.”
