Tata Mumbai Marathon 2024

Dear Friends , I am collecting money for a charity which I am running a marathon for. India has among the largest number of schools and school-goers in the world. However, despite efforts to ensure universal access to education, the country has a severe learning crisis. The National Achievement Survey (NAS) is a national level assessment conducted to obtain information about the learning achievement of students of Grades 3, 5, 8 and 10 across India.While learning gaps existed even before the pandemic, two years of lockdown exacerbated the gaps. The biggest cities in Maharashtra - Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and Nasik - are in the bottom third performers on these assessments, despite having better public infrastructure resources Recognizing the need to work with government schools to achieve impact at greater scale, Akanksha began the School Project in 2007 in collaboration with the Municipal Corporations of Mumbai and Pune. The project aims to create a scalable school model within the government system that drives wider systemic reform in education. Today, Akanksha’s network has grown to 26 schools with more than 600 educators ,12000 students & 4000 alumni Your contribution would help The Akanksha Foundation to ensure High-Quality and Free Education to Children from Underprivileged Families and get their families out of poverty. Join me & support my campaign for Quality education through The Akanksha Foundation

About Me
Hi everyone! My name is Anika Shah, and I am a 16-year-old student in Grade 11 IB at the Cathedral and John Connon School. I like swimming, singing and enjoy reading about biology and global affairs. I've always had a strong desire to learn, and I firmly think that everyone has a fundamental right to a quality education. The Akanksha Foundation has been working to create an excellent learning environment for students from underprivileged backgrounds. I personally visited one of their schools and witnessed all the work they carry out. As they use their organisation to have a beneficial influence on numerous lives, I aim to help them in their cause.
