Greetings from an Asha Volunteer!
On the eve of India�s 60th Year of Independence, we would like to request your Company to participate in India�s development. One of the key links to development is Education. Sadly, basic education has not received the focus it needs, and even today, many of India's children � over 50 million of them � are out of school. They have no access to basic education, have never read a book, and will continue living a life of poverty. A few of the problems they face are - not being able to travel long distances to reach a school; not having enough food to carry them through the day; and not being accepted in schools where they are of lower / other castes.
We invite you to join us this year between August 15th and September 5th � Teacher�s Day in India - to bring hope to these children, and make a difference in their lives. Visit www.workanhour.com
and make a corporate donation. Work an Hour funds teacher's salaries, bridge programs, and mid-day meals that allow children much needed support for schooling.
Please consider a making a tax-deductible donation online at : http://www.ashanet.org/workanhour/2006/?r=JavaRanch&a=81 About Asha
