With our work in India I come across many different organizations making a difference, usually in small ways, an incremental change here and another one there, before you know it, you look back and see the impact that has been done.  Often this work is unheralded by others and yet, it continues as in the case of one of my partners Ashirwad Kendra Trust.

Me, Dawna and Azariah, taking a break on the way to the Dangs District of Gujarat

Quietly, they have involved themselves in meeting the needs of many tribal villages within the mountains of Gujarat through their mobile medical unit, bore well program, hostel for young girls and a English Medium school for little ones.  Their work has been going on for over 11 years now and has grown in size and scope since their beginning in 2007.  Just recently they decided to move forward in building a permanent multi use classroom on their site using some new building materials that have reduced the cost of traditional construction by about 20%.  I call attention to their work with the tribals because in talking with them you wouldn’t even know the impact or the extent of their work, which is literally a few people who have committed their lives to service, regardless of the cost, in order to touch lives and make a difference in an area which many don’t venture to because it’s far away with no fanfare.

As with most small NGO’s (non-government organizations) resources are tight and often scarce so you pray a lot and talk to as many folks as you can sharing your mission and vision hoping for some support.  This is the reality for Ashirwad Kendra Trust (ASK) and is one reason I wanted to highlight them and call attention to their work.  To learn more of what they are involved in visit their website: https://www.asktrust.org/

If you would like to be involved in their work, then the best thing you can do is give.  Wells for Life will handle any financial gifts intended for ASK and not take a fee, we’ll just collect, receipt, and forward the gift so that they can receive maximum benefit of that gift.

I have complete trust in their work and their vision to make a difference in tribal Gujarat and ask that you join them in their efforts to touch lives through medicine and education.
