The Aasha Project has a track record spanning 20 years in dealing with hard to reach and difficult to engage young people. The Aasha Project is geared towards cutting crime, reducing the fear of crime, promoting citizenship and bridging the gap between communities. Aasha aims to work with the young people and attempt to create a positive change in the youth culture in the area that would see a reduction in some of the crime and antisocial behaviour. The project aims to recruit young people, train them and support them in becoming leaders of their community. It focuses pre-dominantly on young people aged between 12-25, who are at risk of becoming socially excluded or engaging in youth conflict, crime and drugs or anti-social behaviour.
