Vision and Mission of ASHA

Inspired by the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ found in the Holy Bible and the life he led in this world as a man, we established ASHA Organization to participate actively in the services to our fellow beings who are desperately in need of help. Knowing fully well the sufferings and difficulties of our Christians, downtrodden and living far below the poverty line, always remembering the verse "Love thy neighbour as thy self - St. Matt : 22:39, the mighty hand of our Lord enabled us to set up this society and we are grateful to God for the extension and expansion of our services in multifold.

ASHA is rendering services in the field of spiritual nourishment, social upliftment, economic development etc., especially among the Dalits (Harijans and Girijans who are considered to be untouchables, live far away from the main centre of the village) the poorest of the poor, handicapped persons, widows, orphans and those who suffer from physical disabilities. The main aim of ASHA is to identify and meet those who are desperately looking for help and provide assistance using our limited and available resources and develop them financially, socially, physically, spiritually and aim at the total development of those individuals and also with the intention to make them heirs of His Kingdom in accordance with the Bible.

Practical Hands (Helping hands) are better than mere words. We, being Christians, it is our responsibility to share the love of Christ with others, serve the poor and needy as Christ did, and be the witnesses to Christ. We are always being strengthened with the love of Christ, we believe in.

St. Matt. 25 : 40 says "Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me". With this as the main aim of ASHA, our sincere efforts are to extend a helping hand to the needy, thus make our lives fruitful.

ASHA is made to remember God's word in Psalms 41 : 1, 82 : 3, Proverbs 14 : 21, 19 : 17 and 22 : 9 and try to achieve better results in service to the humanity. To show love, kindness and sympathy to the poor, is a responsibility kept on our shoulders. Having experienced the Love of God, as the limbs of His body it is our duty to share the burdens of our neighbours as our God is sharing our sufferings. Thus, an opportunity is granted to us to prepare others as the heirs of His kingdom.

God has granted us intelligence, riches and blessings. It is a gift and thankful to God for 'what we are'. ASHA is making humble attempt to save the souls of unfortunate and to bring them to the feet of Jesus.

It is our sincere desire to shape our experiences with you and request you to be the partners of our service. It is our earnest desire and pray God for our services and seek your help, assistance and co-operation prayerfully and encourage us in all possible ways.
