Ashwini Charitable Trust is a voluntary organization.A volunteer is a stranger , they are unsure how they will be able to empower children .Then they meet the children and the magic begins and they come back for more classes. They teach academics, dance, art, crafts and they make it a point to thank us for the opportunity they have got to serve the children.We currently support 350 children Besides academic support, the children also receive Computer training, Hobby Classes, Employability Skills training, and Life Skills training.The children’s journey comes to a climax when they graduate and enter mainstream society In the past year 839 volunteers clocked in 31,000 hours at our 4 centers thus enabling us to to keep our Administrative costs less than 11% thanks only to our dedicated volunteers.

The Annual Day which took place on 19th November 2017,is a special occasion which brings together the children, their families, the volunteers who work with them, the sponsors and donors on a single platform. The Annual Day gives us an excellent opportunity to thank all those people who have supported our children’s education and all the other activities we conduct for them.This year it was a grand succeess.We felicitated the children,volunteers and mothers of the children.

Ayudha Puja on the ninth day of Navaratri celebrations  we had grand celebrations with pooja to the vehicles, books,computers etc in the Trust
We had Gifts distribution during Daan Utsav during Diwali by the staff of a Five star Hotel who sponsored gifts for all the new children of the Trust this academic year. Each one of our students wrote out their dream gift and the angels from the Hotel fulfilled every child’s wish. A volunteer.distributed goodies for Diwali and gave each child a box of sweets and a some savories.ACT celebrated Diwali in an eco friendly manner.We do not  burst crackers, instead we distribute sweets, savoury,  biscuits, stationery and a tube of tooth paste to every child.
