Our third annual Gala was an incredible success, and we owe it all to our supporters! We raised over $750,000 for @theakankshafoundation's work in India. It's extraordinary what our community can accomplish when we come together. We all feel energized and inspired by the stories shared by Akanksha's communities, educators, and children.
Look out for more photos, videos, and more to come soon @theakankshafund. #akankshagala2018 #akankshafund #educatingchildren ... See MoreSee Less
The Akanksha Fund is excited to be featuring the I Dream Like You: Stories We Walk Past book at our Gala this year, which captures the incredible stories of 25 Akanksha alumni. This book represents the stories of the million young people in India and the barriers that they must overcome to reach their dreams. #akanksha #theakankshafund #educatingchildren #akankshagala2018Well, presenting the Akanksha wall of stories.
Every picture on this wall depicts a story; a story of dreams, dedication, hardships and successes.

The municipal building where the Mahalaxmi School in Mumbai operated was in disrepair. The school's walls were crumbling and posed a danger to the students.
Students and parents took action. They advocated for a new building this year from the municipal government, which is spacious, beautiful, and safe.
This is just one example of Akanksha's work of empowering communities. To find out more about this work, follow our upcoming gala, Educating Children, Empowering Communities. #akankshagala2018 #akankshafund #educatingchildren ... See MoreSee Less
