Work An Hour campaign - 2009
Work An Hour campaign started
Each year, people from around the world come together in a demonstration of great human spirit, to help educate underprivileged children in India. Work An Hour, or WAH, as it is popularly known, is a summer-long, global, online fundraising campaign based on a simple concept:
" Participants are asked to symbolically Work an Hour towards the cause of children's education by donating an hour's worth or more of their salary."
This year, the event begins on July 15 and concludes on September 15 spanning through India's Independence Day on August 15 and Teachers' Day on September 5.
Asha Zurich hopes you will participate in making this event a success. Please click
