WHAT WE DO
BEHT has always believed that through Education, Poverty will be made history and is well on its way to prove this. In fifteen years and with very little finance, BEHT in collaboration with BET (Bhagvatinandji Education Trust – a registered trust in India) has set up 4 educational centres of excellence in Gujarat.
Aasha & Sunil’s London Marathon challenge
On Sunday 26 April 2015 we ran the Virgin London Marathon, something that both of us had always wanted to do albeit knowing that the 26.2 miles would be an enormous challenge, both physically and mentally.
A devastating Earthquake struck Nepal on 26th April 2015. Over 8000 people lost their lives and many thousands had their homes and livelihoods destroyed. Soon after the earthquake, BEHT and BET made an important decision to go to Nepal and offer relief work.

New school in Savarkundla
A new school in Savarkundla has just opened to educate 300 children from slum areas. The building work started in November and fi nished at the end of June, ready for the start of the Indian school year. The children are excited and eager to study – a few years ago, a lack of any schools meant that this was not even an option for them! Here they will learn to read, write & do maths, which will give them a solid foundation to move forward.
