We believe true education is not just about achieving high grades on core subjects. It’s about seeing problems creatively and using different approaches to find better results. It’s about learning skills and values that define who we are, and using that learning to make the right choices.
Such learning opportunities are vital for children, particularly when they come from low-income communities where a happy childhood is a distant privilege. Art is a vehicle through which children can speak their mind, paint their world and dream of a very different life for themselves. It’s a way to give them a childhood that so many of them have never experienced.
This is where Art for Akanksha makes a difference.
Art for Akanksha provides children from low-income communities with a powerful art education and career opportunities. Funds from the sale of their artwork are used to reach out to more children.
