After the success of Akshara Apna School many people from other slum areas also
approaching us for starting school in their area for their children too. Many requests are
coming for educational as well as other facilities for elders. For this purpose, Akshara is
planning to start a community centre in slum area of Parel, where children will get
educational facilities as well as different skill development program will be conducted for
men & women.

realise that there are certain needs which has to be fulfilled like well-developed study
centre, a library for children as well as skill development programs for men & women
specially for women who want to work from home in this pandemic situation.
