Sponsor a School
The Akanksha Schools are founded with a mission to ensure that all children are equipped with the education, skills and character they need to lead empowered lives. The schools seek to incorporate the many years of learning and experience gained from the Akanksha centers to be able to increase the impact on each child by taking ownership of each child’s entire education. Run in partnership with the local municipalities, the BMC and PMC, and a strong corporate advocate/sponsor (such as the Thermax Social Initiatives Foundation in Pune and TechMahindra in Mumbai), Akanksha seeks to create a small network of high-performing municipal schools that redefine what is possible for children from low-income communities and can serve as a model for systemic reform across India.
