Asha Teens are .
ASHATEENS was formed in 2015 in order to encourage teens to become more involved within their communities. Now, the Asha for Education NYC/NJ Chapter is proudly supported by a team of dedicated teen volunteers who readily and passionately commit hours of hard work in order to ensure that Asha is able to meet its goals and give back as much as possible.
We eagerly encourage all teenagers to join the NYC/NJ Chapter in its endeavors!
Meet the Teen Coordinators
Co-President: Tanisha Khabe
My name is Tanisha Khabe, and I am a sophmore at Florence Memorial High School. I am a strong believer in the fact that everyone should receive an education and have a chance to pursue their aspirations. Every day, millions of people have to strife for the opportunity of being educated, while I get this opportunity very easily. And for this reason, I volunteer for a cause like this, when one day, there will be a time when every child under poverty will experience education somehow, without any struggle.
Co-President: Kareena Pandya
My name is Kareena Pandya. I am a senior in high school and I started volunteering with Asha for Education just recently. I truly value education and how much it can do for an individual. To be able to help children in India to receive a proper education and to motivate them to achieve their full potential are things that I feel privileged to do. I am so proud to be a part of this organization and its cause.

I am in awe as to how much this organization is able to accomplish with the amount of staff behind the scenes. The idea of providing foreign aid to people in need is something that I would strive to be a part of, and therefore I will continue to be a part of this foundation. I am excited to see the growth of this foundation’s boundaries in the future, and would love to be a part of that growth.
