ASHA CENTER UK
The ASHA Centre is a UK charity working for the empowerment of young people, sustainable development and peace and reconciliation worldwide. The Centre is a hub of intercultural activities, hosting a range of educational, arts and environment programmes.
The founding director of the ASHA Centre, Zerbanoo Gifford, had been looking for the perfect spot to site the ASHA Centre. She had nearly given up hope of ever finding the ideal location. Then, out of the blue, friends called her and suggested she came and saw a Bed and Breakfast place up for sale in the Royal Forest of Dean. Having never visited the Forest, Zerbanoo ventured forth. She was awe-struck by the majesty of the scenery. She understood why Tolkien had been enchanted by the Forest and inspired to write “Lord of the Rings”. She was not surprised to discover that J K Rowling had spent her youth in the area, enriching her imagination. There was magic in the air. A place to bring people together, a place of beauty and peace
Non-stop renovation followed, during which the house was furnished with facilities for individuals, groups and retreats. Zerbanoo and her husband, Richard, a human rights lawyer, have furnished the restored Georgian main house with great care and an eye for beauty. Those who come to the ASHA Centre are not only visiting a historical building but they are also enjoying the warmth of a loving home.
The surrounding landscape has also been transformed. A stream flows from St Anthony’s Well, an ancient spring whose name dates from the medieval period, which was closely connected to the monks of nearby Flaxley Abbey.
The remains of an old swimming pool and a sea of mud have been replaced with an Olde English rose-garden where the perfume is intoxicating.
The sloping wasteland beside the house has been turned into a bio-dynamic fruit and vegetable garden by young volunteers. Visitors are treated to the pleasure of seeing their food picked freshly and having the unique taste of naturally produced meals. No fertilisers, no carbon footprint, no packaging – just real food, as Mother Nature intended.
The ASHA Centre is located in the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, between the River Severn and River Wye.
As well as hosting courses, the Centre is available for hire. Corporations, charities and groups of individuals use the ASHA Centre for conferences, retreats and private functions.
All ASHA Centre profits go toward funding its pioneering leadership and personal development projects with young people from around the world, whose lives are transformed by the experiences they gain at the ASHA Centre.

Membrillos Por el Mundo - Spain
La Asociación cultural, "Membrillos Por el Mundo", fundada en Puente Genil por el italiano, Alberto Ucci y por el español, Miguel Haro Torres, visitó el pasado viernes 18 de marzo, el almacén centralizado de El Cabril, dentro de las actividades de su programa de intercambio "Black Cherry", que surgió hace tres años con la voluntad de consolidar una línea de actuación para lograr un equilibrio sostenible entre progreso, tecnología y medio ambiente.
Conocer, aprender, confrontarse, hablar, tocar y vivir las diferencias, son la vía para lograr una apertura mental, un crecimiento personal y un valor tan significativo como la consciencia europea, además de descubrir lo fascinante que es comunicarse con coetáneos de países diferentes. Con esta mentalidad nace "Black Cherry", programa subvencionado con fondos de la Unión Europea y cuyos participantes, procedentes de países tan diversos como Canadá, Polonia, Francia, Lituania, Rumanía y España, se han unido en aras de un objetivo común: la concienciación y sensibilización por la protección del medioambiente.
Durante la visita, el grupo de más de 20 personas, agradeció a Enresa su "dedicación en el recorrido" y la explicación detallada del funcionamiento de la instalación, "permitiendo así la difusión y conocimiento de El Cabril, haciendo que sea algo más cercano y familiar".
"Membrillos por el Mundo" y los chicos de intercambio de "Black Cherry", por medio de la fundación Fundacja Dla Wolnosci de Polonia, la Asociación Juvenil MJC Montbrison, de Francia y Environmental Club "Zvejone" de Lituania, agradeció en una carta dirigida a Enresa el "haberles dado esta oportunidad única".
