This year's annual party at Ashiana, organized for Ashiana residents, Manavi staff and the dedicated Ashiana volunteers was a huge success.
The committed Ashiana volunteers have continued to provide residents with ongoing support during evenings and weekends. They assist with transportation, groceries, interpretation, economic empowerment workshops and workshops on financial planning. As of November 2006 one of our volunteers, who is also a social worker, has been working with the residents on life skills, personal conflicts and anger management issues. Thank you Vandana, Irvi, Aarti, Sumi, Shubra, Uma, Corina, Ritu, Nihar, Lata, Madhavi, Anjali, Doris, Shefali and Lakshmi for your valuable time and efforts.
