Abhaya Kshethram Charitable Trust (AKCT) is a grassroots organisation that works for the welfare of physically or mentally challenged children. AKCT also assumes responsibility for the health, nutritional, recreational and other needs of the children they care for.
Education remains one of AKCT's priority areas of work. AKCT opened a special school in 1996 that presently houses around 110 students from all over the country. In addition about 40 day scholars also attend the school. Many of their projects, particularly those for older children, have a vocational training component to them. Students are trained in income-generating activities like tailoring, embroidery and mechanical work to help them stand on their own feet.
AKCT follows an exhaustive evaluation process which includes analysis of quantitative metrics like the number of children impacted, cost per activity of child, and qualitative measures such as the impact on the local community, organisational structure and long-term sustainability of the organisation.
