The Akanksha Health program has both a preventive and curative side. On the preventive side, children parents are made aware of health issues through sessions and discussions at monthly parent meetings. On the curative side, any medical problems are identified in class, and Akanksha teachers and social workers do frequent follow-up checks. In addition, Akanksha conducts medical check-ups every six months and provides treatment when necessary. Akanksha counselors work to reduce aggressive behavior in the classroom by supporting teachers, parents and children.
The Empowerment Program aims to help adolescent children deal with negative influences such as alcoholism and substance abuse, and provide a forum for students to discuss social issues such as gender inequality, early marriage, and issues related to sex and sexuality.
