NGO Profile :
Aastha Foundation was established in 2008 in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The main objective of the Foundation is to take care of the elderly, who need help and shelter.

Aastha Foundation wants to construct a Home (Basant Prabha-Visawa) in Aurangabad to provide residential housing and assisted living for the elderly. It will be constructed on 3 acres of land and accommodate up to 100 people. The Home will provide the elderly, twin sharing rooms with sanitation facilities, recreational facilities such as lawns and garden, dining hall and kitchen, meditation room, physiotherapy, counselling, and place to hold cultural events. The construction is expected to start from September 2015, after completing all legal formalities.

In FY15, Aastha Foundation organized an event on ‘Innovations in India’ in which a speech was given by Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. It organized a workshop on Fund Raising, participated in the GuideStar Exhibition in Mumbai, and also participated at a CSR Live Week Exhibition where it showcased its work and interacted with other NGOs and Corporates. Aastha Foundation also organized various need based programmes for senior citizens such as an Acupressure camp, Walkathon camp, Eye check-up, Bone density checking camp, Stress relieving workshop, and Alzheimer awareness camp.

With the support from Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Aastha Foundation has started conducting a Certificate Course in Geriatric care in Marathwada, which aims at promoting health, by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in the elderly.
