Social Work Department
The social work department is the critical link between Akanksha, the parents, and the community. Social workers conduct regular home visits to keep track of developments in the children’s lives, maintain good relationships with their families, understand their struggles, make sure children attend both Akanksha and their formal schools regularly, and follow up in case of any issues. Through all this they make sure of each child’s well being and control dropouts from the system.
