Asha Florida ( prev. Gators for Asha ) is an active Student Chapter of the non-profit organization Asha for Education at the University of Florida. It is a completely volunteer driven organization, comprising of dedicated individuals from this¬†University and Gainesville area, striving to make a difference in the society. We believe that education is one of the primary factors in shaping a child’s future and by extension, future of the entire community and country.

Asha Florida works to promote the education of underprivileged children by providing financial assistance and support to the NGOs focused on education projects. Volunteers of this chapter work closely with the project partners in India, while organizing fundraisers and community awareness events locally. Gate River Run, a popular 15K race in Jacksonville, Florida is Asha Florida’s primary fundraiser, to directly help support several education projects.

Work An Hour or WAH. Donate to one or more of the 10 projects needing your financial support to help the children.
