What we do

The Association for Social Health in India has a chequered history spanning over a few years short of a century, precisely 92 years. During this long period many important decisions having far reaching consequences, were taken. Although the basic aim has always been and continues to be ‘Empowerment of Women, Children and Youth’ belonging to the less privileged section of society, the mode of achieving this has undergone a significant change. Strategies have been modified to adapt to changes in the moral and social structure of the Indian society.
