Some insights into Ashraya

Ashraya is funded in several ways; donations from contractors, Indian and foreign sponsorship programmes, donations from voluntary organizations and companies and fund-raising events. Our administrative costs are extremely low and most of the money raised goes directly into services for underprivileged children and women.
