The Akanksha Foundation works in the field of education, initiating school reform through The School Project. The mission is to provide children from low-income communities with a high-quality education, enabling them to maximize their potential and transform their lives.
Akanksha's 12-14 year old students participate in an art lab, connected to their school, for three years. In these labs, they explore, discover and design futures that may have art playing very important roles. Art and designs from the labs find their way onto products which are sold to generate revenue. Akanksha products range from simple ideas to complicated handpainted pieces of art. At the heart of each product is the immense talent in children. Each product carries with it, more than a piece of art. It has in it, the essence of the story of the child who was involved in creating it. Akanksha products aim to be high quality, creative and a fun way to add colour and spunk to any space.
