Happy Anniversary to Aksahara Foundation!

Today Akshara Foundation is celebrating its anniversary, and we're thrilled to have been part of the celebrations. Fifteen years of working to see 'every child in school, and learning well'! Fifteen years of working to improve balwadis and anganwadis, to set up libraries in government schools and remote areas of Karnataka.

We congratulate each and every member of Akshara Foundation for putting their heart and soul into their work here. Congratulations! What with March 20 also being the UNESCO specified International Happiness Day, and a wonderful lunch, we're just so happy to have Akshara Foundation as our friend and 'house-mates'!

Here's a timely article in The Better India that gives a glimpse of how Akshara prescribes education for our children's future survival! See how children in a government school are making robotic devices.
