ASRA (The Association of Social Research and Action) came into existence in the Year 1996 by a small group of professionals having a common vision and sensitivity towards the needs and problems of the deprived and underprivileged section of the society.Though the seed of foundation of ASRA was sown in the year 1996, it got registered under the Society Registration Act 21, 1860 in the year 2000 and under Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 1976 in the year 2006.  ASRA has also received certificate of accreditation for good governance of voluntary organizations by Credibility Alliance, Mumbai.  Since then ASRA has steadily. At ASRA we take the advantage of our more than a decade of Knowledge and Experience in bringing social awareness to the deprived and underprivileged class of the society. We don’t impose solutions, but work with organisations over many years to strengthen their own efforts to tackle these social issues.

In our work we follow simple steps:

  1. Work hand in hand with the people, other NGO’s and agencies to achieve our goal.
  2. We don’t just work on awareness but we implement significant changes.


  • To promote positive change locally, nationally and internationally.
  • To promote the community participation in different levels of programme implementation and empower them for behavioral change through mutual consent and interaction in the areas of health, education, family welfare, population education and women empowerment.
  • To provide counseling services, training and orientation on different social issues.
  • To provide awareness and promote Reproductive health education, especially among adolescents and women of backward and rural areas.
  • To provide awareness and promote child care and immunization to maximize healthy practices and minimize malnutrition, IMR, CMR and MMR.
  • To improve gender equality by working to gain equal status for women and men especially in the areas of education, health and livelihood.
