Dear Asha Atlanta Vols,

I am looking to transfer funds to Nishtha Night Shelter and Nishtha Jagaran projects to provide for the college education of three girls under the Support a Child program. I am writing to get a quick vote so I can disburse the funds.

1. Nishtha Night Shelter: Support for college education of Asha and Alo. 

You may recall that Asha and Alo (names changed) are the very first success stories to come out of the night shelter. They are both children of sex workers, and passed out of Class 12 and were placed in Nursing school through Nishtha's effort and Asha Atlanta's support. For the past few years a very gracious Asha Atlanta donor has been supporting the college education of these two girls.  

Please see link below to spreadsheet detailing the budget for 2016-2017 (after accounting for previous years donations and balances. Some difference in budget requested vs balance is to be expected from currency fluctuations). To summarize, the requested budget for Asar and Alo for 2016-2017 is Rs.32,000 annually or Rs. 2700/month

2. Nishtha Jagaran: The above SAC donor has also very kindly volunteered to support the college education of one girl from the Nishtha Jagaran program. 

Budget estimate to support college education of one girl = Rs. 8700 annually (see link below to budget spreadsheet)

Please reply ONLY to me (atlanta@ashanet.org) with your Yes/No vote by EOD, Thursday, August 04. As always, please remember that your vote is part of the open, democratic process that defines Asha for Education. It ensures that no private donor can send (tax-deductible) funds to their personal contacts in India. 

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Chapter coordinator

Dear Asha Atlanta Vols,

Let us add the third one.

3. Kalyania - Prayas Centre: We have been supporting this project since 2008. Last year it was nominated as a WAH project and we got 5,538.49 USD from WAH funds. We propose to add a few hundred dollars more from the chapter funds and release four lakhs.

The total budget is around 15 lakhs out of which 9.3 lakhs have been requested from Asha. http://www.ashanet.org/projects-new/documents/896/Budget_2016_17.pdf - this email asks for your vote to release 4 lakhs (including the WAH funds).

The last site visit report is available http://www.ashanet.org/projects-new/documents/896/Site_Visit_2015.pdf

Please reply ONLY to Anu (atlanta@ashanet.org) with your Yes/No vote by EOD, Thursday, August 04. As always, please remember that your vote is part of the open, democratic process that defines Asha for Education. It ensures that no private donor can send (tax-deductible) funds to their personal contacts in India. 

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Abhyuday
