“To Make Change Be The Change” – Gandhi
Less than half of India’s children go to school and 53% of girls between 5 and 9 are illiterate. In a country thought to hold the world’s largest population by 2020 and second largest economy by 2050, these statistics seem unbelievable.
Akanksha is an organization with a mission to impact the lives of children from low-income communities, enabling them to maximize their potential and transform their lives. They believe that all children have the capacity to learn and achieve, and that differences in achievement are only a result of inequity of opportunity. Education, something that we look at as so fundamental to a fulfilled life, is unavailable to these children giving them little chance of being able to break out the cycle of severe poverty. Each shirt you buy from Tobias 10% of the profit will go directly to the Akanksha foundation.
