Project Akanksha

Tax benefits
Project Akanksha has been working earnestly to provide educational assistance to the underprivileged children of Sanshil Foundation and till now, have been able to instruct close to 100 children with online classes. 

In our endeavour to reach more people, we are holding a fundraiser till the 10th of September 2020

Due to the financial burden, intensified by the lockdown, many parents are unable to afford basic items for their childrens’ education. 
Thus, we will be collecting funds to provide these children with: 

1. Stationery items such as textbooks, notebooks, pens, etc to support their online classes and otherwise.

2. Many families are facing financial hardships in the light of the pandemic which subsequently results in the withdrawal of their children from school. In the case of families with multiple children, the girls will often be the first to have to sacrifice on their education. Once the child is out of the education system, it becomes harder to reintegrate them.

We are all aware of the plight of the girl child in India, and one of the best ways to make sure that they are not further disenfranchised is to help educate them. Thus, through this fundraiser we will be helping to sustain and pay for the education of the most needful girl child at Sanshil Foundation’s Project Bagiya. 

3. Also, in our exclusive collaboration with the Sanshil Foundation’s Project Bagiya, we will be raising money to distribute cotton masks handmade by rural women at the village stitching centre. We will be giving underprivileged children and their families these masks for free. This initiative is two-fold; it will help generate livelihood opportunities for women in villages and provide safe and environment friendly protection to the underprivileged families. 

We highly encourage you to support this cause, and if possible, please consider donating. No amount is small and through your donations, we will be changing the lives of several families.

Dear Supporters,

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the fundraiser conducted by Project Akanksha to help the underprivileged students at Project Bagiya. We were able to achieve our goal of 1 lac rupees within two days of the launch. Part of the money raised is going to go to sponsoring the education of Shilpa Ghosh, a Bagiya student.

She is a student of class 11 studying commerce without math at a CBSE school. She’s a fluent English speaker and scored an average of 80% in her class 10 board exams. She’s loving, empathetic and likes to help children in her neighborhood with their homework. She feels very passionate about her education and is a keen learner. This is reflected in her excellent work ethic and her penchant for the following routine. She has been learning Kathak for the past seven years from Guru Bittoo Sarkar. She plays the harmonium and has a keen interest in Indian classical vocal music as well.

Her mother is a cook and her brother is a college student pursuing B.com. Unfortunately, a few years ago when she was in Grade 1, her father passed away. It is Shilpa’s resilience that has enabled her to overcome all hurdles. However, she requires our help to support her education.

Thus, we’d like to thank everyone for their contribution, big or small, you have helped change her life for the better.
