About Akanksha

Akanksha was born when a group of new friends started volunteering on weekends at public hospitals and homes for destitute children and women in Chennai in 1998.  Akanksha Public Charitable Trust was created on July 15, 2000 in Chennai, Tamilnadu and registered soon after when some of its volunteers decided to devote more time and energy to Akanksha to make it their primary work.


Akanksha’s purpose has evolved over the years.  Today, Akanksha works to reach out, nurture and learn from needy communities through initiatives in areas that include education, health, livelihoods, culture and ecology especially engaging with women and children in such communities.


Over the last decade, Akanksha’s work has involved the following activities:
  • Volunteering at state owned ‘children’s observation homes’ to help such state owned organizations deliver better by organizing activities for their children and helping children who have strayed away from their homes to get in touch with their families and return home.
  • Volunteering 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.
  • Sponsoring medical expenses of financially needy people especially women and children.
  • Sponsoring the educational expenses of financially needy children.
  • Providing relief material to those affected by earthquakes and tsunamis.
  • Augmenting the work of other not for profit organizations whose work is closely aligned with that of Akanksha by providing voluntary services and / or financial assistance to such organizations.
  • Establishing and operating a rural school and primary health centre.kanksha was born when a group of new friends started
