Asha-Munich, a chapter of Asha for Education Foundation came into existence in January 2003 at the initiative of a group of Indian professionals and students in the Munich area. We aim to mobilize public opinion amongst the residents of Munich and surroundings to generate financial and technical support, for grass root education movements in India

The broader Objectives of Asha are :

  • To interact with other non-profit organizations to make our mission a reality.
  • To support social development and educational projects in India.



The Siragu Montessori School was founded in 2003 by the support of the Suyam Charitable Trust with the focus of educating slum dwelling and street kids in and around Palavedu Pettai, Chennai. Over the past 11 years, Siragu has provided primary education to over 400 children with the help of 35 teaching and 17 non-teaching staff. To ensure a better link between primary and secondary education, Siragu arranges for special provisions and trainings to help children appear for various levels of competitive examinations. Additionally, Siragu runs a hostel which takes care of residence and nutrition of homeless children. Asha-Munich has continued to extend their support for the good cause at Siragu by disbursing 5000 Euros in the year 2012-2013 and 3745 Euros in 2013-2014.
