About The Akanksha Foundation

The Akanksha Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to impact the lives of children from low- income communities, enabling them to maximize their potential and change their lives. Akanksha works primarily in the field of education, addressing non-formal education through the Akanksha centre and also formal education by initiating school reform.

 The Akanksha School Project represents our first effort to work with the formal school system in Mumbai and Pune. It is an effort by Akanksha to extend its activities in the field of education, leveraging our experiences from nearly twenty years of work with children from low-income communities to improve the quality of learning in public schools. Specifically, Akanksha hopes to provide inputs in the fields of teaching, extra-curricular activities and community engagement that will significantly enhance the learning opportunities for children in these schools, demonstrating what is possible for children from low-income communities to achieve given the right opportunities. Currently, Akanksha runs 20 schools in partnership with the government in Mumbai and Pune, and aims to start more schools in the next academic year.

 Central to the mission of Akanksha is the role of the teachers as the children depend on their teachers to bridge the gap between the known and the unknown, to bring the outside world to them, to help them dream, to show them their potential, to push them when everyone else has given up, to empower them to chase their ambitions and to show them that each one of them is incredibly special.

 Every Akanksha teacher is directly responsible for at least 35 kids in a class. The teacher’s role is to guide the students towards academic achievement while inculcating self-esteem and values that empower them to think critically and make informed choices leading them to transform their lives.

 The teachers cultivate an environment of high achievement coupled with fun learning in the classrooms. They build strong bonds with children to understand each child’s needs and work with the parents as partners in their child’s education and future. They understand the communities the children come from, the background of each child and the challenges they face every day. Despite this, they keep excellence a top priority and empathize rather than sympathize with the kids to push them even harder as they believe in each child’s potential.

The teachers understand that to create an impact on every child, they need to create instructional plans to each child’s needs and deliver instructions in an engaging manner as well as administer assessments to ensure that students are progressing. Teachers ensure that while the learning levels of the students

may be different, they are all moving towards meeting the academic goal.

 The teachers are leaders of their classrooms as they work within teams to ensure that they are maximizing everyone’s potential. They collaborate with other teachers to plan effectively and examine data to ensure they are setting smart goals, manage a group of volunteers to give support to each child, guide helpers to ensure efficient support, interact with the social worker to address any concerns at home affecting them, communicate with the parents to include them in the learning process and work with the administrative team to ensure they are always moving towards the common goal.
