The Akanksha Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a mission to provide children from
low-income communities with a high-quality education, enabling them to maximize their
potential and transform their lives.

We believe that a powerful art education enables children to EXPRESS themselves by helping
them LEARN a visual language to DISCOVER, CREATE and TELL their stories. Art has been
the strongest co-curricular program we offer within Akanksha and are working towards taking to
children beyond the Akanksha network, to demonstrate our belief that art empowers children.

From our corporate supporter

The Akanksha-HDFC association has been truly acknowledged by business channels as well as customers of the bank. It has helped us garner patronage from our customers, which in turn helps grow our business in the long run. Also with such activities we get a chance to give back to society.

Retrospective Home Bazaars 2016

‘The Art never Stopped’ is a series of artwork and stories from the Akanksha children, who despite school closures, learning online, being stuck at home, with just a tiny kit we provided, continued to create art, immersed in the process, learnt from it and talked about themselves

Each child took away different learnings from what they created and amazingly, it had less to do with the end result and everything to do with the process.

Their stories represent all our emotions across the globe, across ages and cultures – gratitude, fear, love, anxiety, hope, loss… and what stays is that we found ways to express it. We did not stop being who we are and ‘The Art never Stopped.’
