Asha Kirnan Bridge School, Chatannali, In partnership with district education department, Asha Deepa is executing the Bridge School for the second year at Chatannali (Last year, the project was in Malakapur). There are 25 children residing at Asha Kirana Centre. The main aim of the project is to identify the school dropouts and mainstream them back to the school.

A gift of Vision Prem Sing was rehabilitated in the month of June, 2008. He belongs to a Thanda (A tribal Village) near Chincholi which is 50 Km from Bidar. He has two siblings, one elder brother & one elder sister. Unfortunately, his elder brother is also blind by birth. In an eye screening program at Asha Deepa, it was found that his sight can be restored. We started finding a doctor who can operate Prem Sing free of cost. Dr. Sbl, an eye specialist has come forward to operate Prem Sing free of cost. As result, he underwent the contract surgery & the operation was successful. Asha Deepa has incurred the medicine expenses after operation. Now, he has 100% visibility & return back to his village where he is going to a normal school.
