The Akanksha Foundation is a Mumbai-based not-for-profit organization providing educational opportunities to less privileged children in India, enabling them to maximize their potential and change their lives. Akanksha serves approximately 3,500 children through its centers and schools in Mumbai and Pune each year. Akanksha centers are formed with the vision to supplement serious gaps in the formal school system and the intent to make it fun to learn. Having seen success with its model for the centers, the Akanksha Foundation and its partners now run six full-time schools in Mumbai and Pune, and expect to have ten more in operation by 2012 through its School Project Initiative, in addition to its centers.
