Akshara loves supporters! We are always on the look-out for people who want to help us take our vision forward by joining us on our exciting journey for change! Over the years, we have enjoyed the support of NGOs, corporate groups, educational institutions, concerned individuals, government departments and community organisations. We partner with those who support us with resources (financial, material educational or otherwise), by sharing skills, or by helping our students gain access to opportunities. Akshara also considers all those we interact with and who make it possible for us to do our work, as partners – for example, our students’ families, community members, staff at UWC Mahindra College (academic and support staff), and supportive panchayat/education department/government officials.

The transformational work that is accomplished by Akshara is only possible thanks to generous support and the contribution of our donors and partners. Akshara has received generous and much-appreciated support through volunteers, donations of material or expertise, collaborations, networking and partnerships and we immensely thank all those who have contributed to its growth and success!
