Akanksha is a unique place where people from varied backgrounds come together to be a part of a movement for change. From fresh graduates to corporate professionals, Akanksha employs engineers, MBAs, lawyers, designers, IT professionals apart from those who have a social work background.

Akanksha focuses on results while recognizing effort. Employees at Akanksha are driven by a sense of purpose and belief that each child can excel. Despite the many challenges they face every day, they are bound by the teamwork, joy, and pride in the work they do and the impact they see. They know that to bring about any change you have to be a part of the change process.

After spending over a decade in the corporate world, I needed to get involved in something meaningful and wanted to work with children. Akanksha provided the platform to use my experience in a way that gave me immense joy and satisfaction. After a year and half of joining, Akanksha feels like a second home. I feel far more accountable than I felt in my corporate job and the belief that I can make a difference in the life of less-privileged children keeps me going. The experience is hugely humbling.” – Chitra Pandit, Sr. Director Development and Communications, at Akanksha.

I joined Akanksha because I was keen to help the thousands of children in Mumbai get a quality education. Since joining Akanksha a year ago, I have been struck by the dedication, team spirit, and relentless drive that everyone at Akanksha demonstrates. I feel privileged to work with such a team.” – Sreeja Nedungadi,  (worked as Strategy Consultant at Akanksha, before moving into Indian School Leadership Institute as C.O.O)
