With the endeavor of becoming the podium for factual, practical information; for all technical and materialistic support and legal or humanitarian facilitation through philanthropic events, schedules and programs, Ashapankh was established in 2016. Ashapankh believes in making basic education, health, and developmental programs accessible to every individual across the globe.
The mission and vision of performing charitable developmental work with equal passion and vigor in both Rural and Urban Sectors is the brainchild of founder Mr.Sagar Shinde. He formulated the blueprint of Ashapankh with the dream of enhancing the lives of both rural and urban people, especially families with children, underprivileged, and youth of the society.
Ashapankh creates opportunities for the young who lack education by working closely with schools and kindergartens in both rural and urban areas. The name itself encapsulates the mission and vision of this non-profitable organization, whose literary meaning is- Asha (Hope) Pankh (Wings) – “Wings of Hope”.
Vision: Narrow the gap between rural and urban regions by providing solutions, which bring basic amenities to the society or community.
Mission: Bring independently working organizations, both Government and Non- Government, together on a platform; create a framework to generate information and welcome ideas to propagate them for effective implementation. This also includes empowering people on their basic rights to attain the basic needs of education, and development.
The interlocked machinery in Ashapankh has a common key-empowering everyone to design, attain, share and make use of information and knowledge for overall growth.
Ashapankh facilitates village level or urban Government bodies, Schools, micro-enterprises, primary health centers, civic bodies, and other such establishments to set up technologically advanced digital tools and infrastructure to fetch information for economic, social, cultural, development and betterment.
The Urban Wing: Expedites the Municipal Corporation and other such bodies to reach out to citizens, leveraging the IT tools, to receive solutions to city problems and issues. If required Software development is incorporated to address issues like-public parking, traffic congestions or lack of public transportation.
The Rural Wing: Emphasizes on the education of children between 13 to 16 years so that dropout percentage in schools are reduced, and children retain the interest in education. In addition, various roadmaps to developmental programs are structured and shared with villagers. They are encouraged for participation so that the essence of development gets connected with self-belief, knowledge, and awareness. The beginning of a voyage needs compassion, courage, direction and people who have a strong belief in change, a change for the betterment of the society, irrespective of caste, race, region, gender, and religion. Ashapankh has it all and looks forward to joining hands with people with the similar standpoint of –donating, Assembling and giving.
