Dear Friends , India has among the largest number of schools (over 1.5 million) and school-goers (over 260 million) 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. NAS 2021 has shown evidence of significant learning losses due to the pandemic. 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
Hey! My name is Siddharth Kumar, and I am a 17-year-old student in Grade 11 at the Cathedral and John Connon School. I like watching cricket and reading about economics, history, and politics. I enjoy being in natural spaces and wildlife photography is one of favourite hobbies. I’ve always been passionate about learning and truly believe that every human being has the fundamental right to a good education. The Akanksha Foundation has been working to provide students from underprivileged backgrounds with a quality learning environment. I hope to support them in their cause as they create a positive impact on countless lives with their organisation.
