ASHA FOR WOMEN
eGlobalTech is an active supporter of ASHA for Women (ASHA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing community-based, culturally competent support to South Asian women living in abusive marriages and homes. One of the first South Asian domestic violence prevention organizations formed in the United States, ASHA has been serving the legal, financial, and emotional needs of South Asian women in the Washington, D.C. metro area for 20 years. Created to circumvent many of the language, cultural, and social barriers that can stop many from seeking help, ASHA has committed itself to preventing abuse victims from falling through the cracks within the domestic violence service system. Asha means “hope” in several South Asian languages. For hundreds of women, ASHA for Women means hope through empowerment.

Operation Jump Start
eGlobalTech participates in"Operation Jump Start" to support soldiers of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom as they transition to civilian careers. The annual event is a way to provide very real benefits to those who are in the healing process at Walter Reed Army and Bethesda Naval Hospitals after being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan. Not only do the Soldiers, Sailors, Airman and Marines have to cope with new physical and emotional challenges, but they also have to, in many cases, transition out of the military to life in the private sector. Operation Jump Start helps support these troops and their families through the rehabilitation process and transition into the civilian community.
eGlobalTech is a part of an important new plan exploring the prospect of opening a Pediatric Hospice in the Washington, D.C. area. Together, with the help of members of Capital Hospice, eGlobalTech is a catalyst involved in launching a hospice for terminally ill children.
Life With Cancer

Operation Covert Santa
“Covert Santa” is the annual Christmas gift drive started by Ed Meagher (“Santa”) for severely wounded soldiers and their families at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Soldiers provide a gift list, which is forwarded to the elves. Each elf can choose to provide gifts from a Santa list for an entire family, an individual family member, an individual gift, or make a cash contribution for a gift. The elves wrap the gifts and deliver them to Santa and his foundation. Santa distributes the gifts on Christmas Day. Last year 200 elves provided Christmas gifts for 88 severely injured soldiers and their families. If you want to enlist as an elf, contact Ed at 703-759-9014, or at email@example.com. You can also send a donation to: Operation Covert Santa 453 Walker Road Great Falls, Va. 22066. eGlobalTech annually participates in this program with help from our employees. Just another way the company is giving back to our community.
