About Aashraya

Aashraya Welfare Society was found in 2009. It started with our Founder and Director, Ms Anna Wogg. After going through tumultuous circumstances, took a decision to not let another voice get silenced. She started by visiting slums and teaching illiterate women. Soon she felt that their needs were not limited to learning to read and write but were multi-faceted. It marked the birth of an organisation that would in future help countless people and bring smiles to their faces. Aashraya is a social, charitable, non-profit organization which works for the upliftment of the helpless to a better standard of life.

We often hear that loving God is loving His people. We try different paths from visiting holy places, fasting for days at an end and following countless rituals. But one of the easiest ways to please our creator is to extend a helping hand to the helpless and loving our neighbor. The word of God says, “Whatever you do for the least of these, you do unto me. Now is the time for us to join hands and work for the least of these....

Aashraya works for those who are fettered to the bondages of poverty and despair, giving them wings to fly. It succoursand supports women, children and people from all milieus who are unable to help themselves. It reinforces this vision through projects and programs like Adult Literacy, Education Sponsorships, Vocal Trainings, distributing rations, clothing the unclothed and fighting against injustices that prevail through social evils in our society.

Aashraya insists that the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a life free from oppression. Such change may not happen overnight and outright but can surely commence when we realize our privileges and use them for the silenced and voiceless.
