Aashray is run by the young blood with the vision to help people, feed them, and provide them with the basic amenities. Aashray has also been working rigorously to break the social taboos associated with menstruation, body shaming, skin colour, etc.
It has also come up with various projects to combat mental health and to save the animals who are often abandoned by their owners or stay on streets in terrible conditions.
The pandemic has changed the lives of many. The deprived class has suffered a lot. They can’t even afford the basic meals of a day because of the loss of daily wage work in the lockdown. The street vendors, masons, daily wage workers, labourers, etc. are now confined to their homes and are longing for a better life.
Keeping this situation in mind, Aashray NGO has been conducting regular food drives since last year keeping in mind the norms of social distancing. The aim is to distribute food in the slum areas and bring a smile on at least one face. Till date, it has conducted food and ration drives in Panchkula, Chandigarh, Mohali and Karnal.
Aashray NGO is led by Mr Shane Bakshi, who is a student as well as a businessman. Since childhood, he wanted to work for a social cause. He joined the NGO in 2015 and the rest is history.
