Asha for Education
October 21, 2009

Big positives: 1) It has little or no overheads, so the funds raised can go completely to projects. 2) Since it is completely volunteer driven, volunteers are fully vested in the success of the organization, so overall effectiveness is high. 3) The organization management is "flat" (with no hierarchy), which makes it truly democratic, and gives every volunteer a strong voice. Negatives: 1) There is a constant problem of volunteer burnout, and few roles for long term volunteers to diversify into. 2) Fundraising capabilities remain limited, and therefore the impact of the organization is limited. 3) Constant turnover of volunteers results in a lot of loss of knowledge, and new volunteers keep "reinventing the wheel"

The volunteers in Asha are what make it a fantastic organization. They are really committed to their work, and very dedicated to making a difference. Volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, and have different ideologies, but come together here.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a massive difference to underprivileged children in India.
