Dear Principals and Faculty Members,
Good Morning! My name is Malini Puli and I am one of the founders of Asha-Jyothi, a local non-profit organization founded 17 years ago in 2003.  A few highlights and background about Asha-Jyothi thus far,

  • 100% volunteer based organization, run by passionate people, parents who work full time and yet driven to give back to the community
  • Close to 0% overhead on all donations
  • 6000+ underprivileged kids being educated in India
  • Year round medical campaigns – free medicines, for the elderly, cervical cancer checkups,  mobile health checkups in remote villages
  • 2019 Educate-Innovate Grant winners are:
    • $106,000 worth Innovation Lab donated to Chantilly High School and inaugurated in 2019
    • $60,000 donation towards Inspiration Studio in Rocky Run Middle School
    • $2,950 to Liberty Middle School
    • $1,800 to purchase Ozobots for Brookfield Elementary School
    • $20,000 was donated to public schools in Seattle, Philadelphia and Fremont, NJ  as a result of school partnerships
  • $475,000 funds raised and spent for COVID relief support in Q2 2021

Our 13th Annual 5K Run is 2 weeks away, on Sunday Sept 19th (Fairfax Corner) and we sincerely request your help to encourage your students and the community around to participate in the run. As you probably heard, it’s a 2-fold advantage – 100% of the registration money will be donated back to the school (pick your school during registration) with an added incentive, see below and the school can send in a proposal requesting help in education/healthcare areas. With COVID, we decided to expand to healthcare too. 
Please see the link to see the $ amount donated to local schools in 2019 –
