Bringing Hope to the Slums of Delhi
The Delhi based Asha Society works in partnership with slum communities to improve living conditions and provide access to healthcare, financial services and education. Over 25 years, Asha has helped more than 700,000 people and 100 slum colonies in Delhi, and its work has inspired national programs throughout India.

Join us for lunch with the inspirational founder and driving force of Asha. Dr Kiran Martin began her medical career in 1988 as a pediatrician treating cholera in a Delhi slum. Today she is an internationally recognised expert on urban health and development. She will be joined by Chandan Singh, an Asha graduate who grew up in Delhi’s Jeevan Nagar slum and is now a mathematician and research intern at the Australian National University.
