Jeevan Asha Charitable Society is a non-profit organization reaching out to socio-economically challenged communities in Thane and beyond through education and basic healthcare.
Born out of a dream, Jeevan Asha was founded by Basil D’Souza in April 1999. Its vision was inspired by a deep, strong desire to ‘bring hope to many lives by serving local communities through various projects’. Child and adult literacy was foremost; because education is a key tool in breaking the curse of illiteracy, thus bringing to an end the vicious inheritance of poverty.
In response to this acute necessity, Jeevan Asha’s flagship project - the ‘Day Care Centre’ in Thane, commenced in August 2000 to reach out to children from marginalized families. As a result of our work with the children, we gained the confidence of the community and we branched out, addressing the health and nutritional needs of women and children.
Today, under the two verticals of Education and Health Care, we bring holistic development to twenty socio-economically challenged communities.
