ASRA Transforming Lives Of Destitute Women

SalamatRaho presents to you the inspiring story of ASRA. Aligarh Self Reliance Alliance (ASRA) is a platform to transform the lives of destitute women and to change the narrative of their identity. This venture was created in 2019 by the Muslim Social Uplift Society (MSUS), a registered NGO in Aligarh(U.P.), working for the education of Muslims since 1981. 

It facilitates the overall personality development of trainees through 40 weeks hands-on skill training. The Alliance aims to make them independent and alleviate labels such as ‘destitute’ or ‘deprived’. It nurtures them to grow, build a sense of community, rekindle their thought process, and enables them to undertake independent decision making. ‘Economic independence’ is the central theme of activities undertaken at ASRA.

The alliance aspires to align and work in pursuance of the Government of India’s initiative of “beti bachao, beti padhao” (save daughters, educate daughters) by adding “beti kamao” (earning daughters) to it.
