Our Story

We are a secular, non-profit organization based in Thane, Maharashtra reaching out to  underprivileged communities in Thane and beyond by providing education, nutrition and basic healthcare.


Born out of a dream, Jeevan Asha Charitable Society was founded in April 1999 by Basil D’Souza. Its vision, inspired by a desire to ‘bring hope to many lives by serving the community through various projects’.


Jeevan Asha reaches out to about 13 underserved communities in Thane and one rural belt in Odisha. We work in two primary programs areas - Healthcare and Education.


Health care is an essential component of a life of dignity. People languishing under diseases and illnesses can rarely hope for a high quality of life, and lakhs still suffer from largely preventable conditions. We have projects that deal in treatment or primary care, and we have projects that provide preventative measures. 

It is no secret that a good education has the power to change a life. Through our Educational projects, we aim to break the cycle of poverty and make way for a better living.
