Over time, we have been fortunate enough to work with several people who have been moral support to us. Though Jeevan and Mercy manage a lot themselves, there are people who come in to support whenever needed. These are strong pillars of encouragement without which, ASHA KUTEER will not be where it is now.

Here are few important people from the team you should know about.


Jeevan has been and will remain the backbone of the system and it was his passion that created ASHA KUTEER. Jeevan has a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and a Master’s degree in Biblical counseling. He was inspired to start ASHA KUTEER when he found a small girl in the Secundrabad railway station. She took him to meet her mother, who was a sex worker and Jeevan realized there is so much we should be doing to improve the life of such kids. He started the organization for orphaned and abandoned kids in the year 2013 with his wife and has been successfully running it all these years.
