NGO Profile :
Akanksha Public Charitable Trust (Akanksha), Chennai, works towards sponsoring educational and medical expenses for financially needy people. In addition, the NGO runs the Imlee Mahuaa School in Kondagaon district in Chhattisgarh, which at present has 60 children above the age of 3 years enrolled.

(i) Education

  • Imlee Mahua School: At the Imlee Mahuaa School, 58 out of the total 60 children come from families whose incomes are below the official poverty line and majority students come from a largely tribal society that is backward, impoverished and uneducated by most conventional norms. Senior girl students are encouraged to work in entrepreneurship development projects run in the school like school teaching, pottery, ceramics, library, reading room and book shop. Their project work involves teaching children in grades nursery through 2, making of clay articles and toys and selling them in the village market. The girls also run the school's library which is used by children of the neighbouring state owned middle school too. At the school, children are also taught Yoga, Music, Art, Gardening, Pottery and Spinning yarn. The students are regularly taking on excursions, picnics and trips.
  • The NGO supports 13 children living in Chennai and 45 new children in Kumhar Para village in Chhattisgarh all belonging to economically weak families, by paying their school and college fees. Volunteers and Trustees kept in touch with the students through the year and received feedback that the children were enjoying their education.
  • Akanksha is supporting 4 senior girls of grade 7 in pursuing the class 10 program of the National Institute of Open Schooling.

(ii) Medical Relief

  • The NGO provides primary medical care for minor ailments to people in and around Balenga Para village in Chhattisgarh and sponsors their medical treatment in a good hospital in Jagdalpur if needed. It also volunteers at state owned hospitals for women and children, helping cancer afflicted children and their families cope with hospitalization and medical treatment by organizing recreational activities and financial aid for them.
