About Us

Akanksha Charitable Trust (R.), Puttur [Team ACT]

Provides equal opportunities for Children and Youth who are disadvantaged

In India, majority of rural school children are deprived of quality education due to various factors. Keeping those challenges in mind, the journey of Akanksha embarked with a group of friends who were motivated by the famous quote- "Knowledge never decreases by being shared " and therefore decided to share the knowledge amongst the needy students. Through Interactive Science sessions, counseling, and motivational talks by eminent personalities to the Rural Government school students, impACT-30 leadership tasks in 9 districts of Karnataka, various skill enhancement programs for youth, connecting 17,000+ youth/ students, opening up a Covid Help Centre during the pandemic, Akanksha is standing out of the crowd by finding true happiness coming from the effort of making others happy.
