I wanted to move to Mumbai and after doing some research I found glowing reviews of Akanksha all over the internet. As soon as I got in contact with them, I was impressed by the professional support I received to apply for a work visa. I was placed in the counselling team, to work within two schools and to develop training based on my experience working as a group facilitator in the charity sector in the UK. I am thrilled to be working in these dedicated teams of passionate, fun and inspiring colleagues. The work that is being done is groundbreaking. I have learnt so much, worked across two cities and been given the freedom and responsibility to develop ideas and innovate. And the children are amazing, I love going to work to learn from them!
I think the best thing is the challenges I have had to face when teaching tough kids who come with their own stories to tell, and how it has been different with each one of them. Sometimes the joy lies in being able to put a point across, which the child understands, or seeing your hard work in the improvement of a child. Sometimes it is just the unconditional love of the kids which makes me want to give it my all.
