50 Foundation’s venture in India is in Hyderabad, where we support projects being run by the Asha Jyothi Foundation.  We have selected Asha Jyothi because of the high standards of the work that it carries out and because it provides outstanding care.  Asha Jyothi is extremely well run and is managed by experienced local leaders.

What does Asha Jyothi do?

Asha Jyothi is a volunteer-based, non-profit organisation dedicated to serving the needs of underprivileged men, women and children by providing access to education and healthcare.  Asha Jyothi’s projects include:

  • a boys’ and girls’ home for orphan and semi-orphan children
  • Asha Back to School programme for orphans and semi-orphans to re-enter education
  • a tailoring institute for women
  • an institute providing training in computing and spoken English for teenage girls who have dropped out of school
  • a professional skills training programme for boys who have dropped out of school
  • tutorials for poor children
  • an educational sponsorship programme for the children of single mothers
  • training schemes for men

Asha Jyothi works particularly in the Secunderabad area of Hyderabad.

Who does this project support?

The people we support in India may include street children, who have been orphaned and need support in a home and school environment and women who have been rescued from the streets and now need training to learn key skills that will give them a chance of future employment.
