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.
