The last site visit was inMarch,2017. Mr. Chennaiah, the project partner, visited Asha Boston on June 2nd in collaboration with AID and gave a very interesting talk on Agrarian Reform and Social Security in India. A few of us later spent the rest of the day with him discussing Sahanivasa, progress, challenges and next steps. So although the site visit itself is over a year ago, we have been very much in contact with the project partners with meetings, telephone conversations, emailandmessages, and are current with the project.
Here is the Funding Request in a nutshell
Since the school has already started and they haven't paid their teachers for the last couple months, the request is to approve funding & disbursal for the entire year. A single checklist will be submitted withschooland library (WAH).
Does Asha Boston want to continue support to Sahanivasa? Amount requested for 2018-19 is INR 10,71,000.

|5mins||New Project Proposals||Akshay Bhole|
Hari's school from Trichy area needs funds for building construction to replace their existing structure which dates back to 1935. This is an all-girls school for grades 6-10. Total of 250 students. His great-grandfather founded the school and it is state-aided so the staff expenditure is covered by the state. Hari used to be an Asha volunteer at Asha Madison 20 years ago and lives in Providence and works in Boston which is why he approached Asha Boston with the proposal.
More details like the budget, pictures and quotes from contractors for bulding work are awaited.
|5mins||Potential Fundraiser from Acton Boxborough High School||Akshay Bhole||AB Asha student club wants to do a fundraiser sometime in the Spring and wanted to talk about logistics and planning. We are looking to meet with them in person sometime in Aug-Sept.|
