About Friends of Aseema

Friends of Aseema is a U.S. nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping the Aseema Charitable Trust in India. Aseema means "limitless" in Sanskrit and reflects the belief in every child's limitless potential. The Aseema Charitable Trust is devoted to giving the best education possible to the most marginalized and underprivileged children it can reach. Directly educating 2,700 children per year, Aseema functions on a lean annual budget for what it must accomplish, with only 7% of funds spent on administration expenses. With supplemental support from Friends of Aseema, Aseema can take its mission to serve these children even further.

Twenty years since its founding, Aseema has grown from a borrowed classroom for a handful of slum and street children to fully managing three public schools in Mumbai serving only poverty-stricken children. In addition, Aseema built and operates a school in a tribal region northeast of the city. Although Aseema's students live in extreme poverty, they now academically outpace their counterparts in the region's private and other public schools.

Aseema's child-centered program demonstrates that education infused with understanding and flexibility of thought can permit a child to rise above even the direst of circumstances. It is a jewel in the world and a model for change anywhere. Learn more at www.friendsofaseema.org.
