The mission and purpose of BTC Ashagram cannot be understood without understanding the alternative.
Research shows that girls born in the red light districts usually fall into the same trap as their mothers. The boys do not fare much better as they find their places in the dark and powerful hierarchy in the business of buying and selling human beings.
By being an ‘Ashakiran’ (a ray of hope), you are not only the beacon of light that leads these young girls and boys out of their abysmal present to a better future, but you are also our torchbearer, conveying the mission, purpose and work of Ashagram to the world, to those who are yet to know of us.
Being an Ashakiran is not merely about raising funds, but also about believing in the ideas of Ashagram, strengthening our very foundation and spreading our network to those near and dear. Once an Ashakiran, you are always a part of the BTC Ashagram family.
