I was inspired by the RTI act and started using it as a tool to solve the problems of the people in my village. We helped them get their power supply connection, their pensions. However, I was physically assaulted by the same villagers and that was the real low point in my life.
Now nearly 6 years later, I am an IRS officer and have pledged my salary to educate the underprivileged and work towards making our society a better place to live.
We decided – it’s not easy to change the elders and their thought process. It’s better to educate the kids and to not let them become like the village elders. So, we thought education is the best tool by which we could mould the children into socially responsible citizens in the future. We decided to educate the kids from poor families by joining them in local private schools and taking up full responsibility for them and their education until they are settled in the career of their choice.
Aakanksha VFABS, has sponsored the education for more than 75+ underprivileged children across Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand.
We provide these students with the fees, books, uniform and food. All the students we sponsor are from a poor background ranging from kids who don't have both parents to families where kid's education have been neglected for years.
There are several more such children who need us, but we don’t have the capacity to support them. We intend to support 500+ underprivileged children. We request you all to help us build an educational home for these children, who can not only be provided education but also be nurtured and taken care of by us.
