Akanksha was born when a group of friends started volunteering on weekends at public hospitals and homes for destitute children and women in Chennai in 1998.
Akanksha Public Charitable Trust was created on July 15, 2000 in Chennai, Tamilnadu and was registered soon after when some of its volunteers decided to devote more time and energy to Akanksha to make it their primary work.
Akanksha works to learn along with and support individuals caught up in life's unfortunate circumstances.
The Chairman of Akanksha Public Charitable Trust, Khodadad Moradian has more than three decades of experience in business and financial consulting. Dr Oswin Thayal, a senior pulmonologist and medical diagnostics entrepreneur is a trustee and was the Chairman of the Trust for a decade since its inception. Prayaag Joshi, currently a teacher and an erstwhile tax advisor is the executive arm of the board of trustees. He works full time on the activities of the trust.
The three trustees work together in a spirit of camaraderie and determine the work of the trust increasingly in consultation with its many beneficiaries who are still very young people.
The trust works with individuals through collaborative initiatives in areas of education, health, livelihoods, culture and ecology especially engaging with the old, the young and women.
Amar Seva Sangram was established to help differently-abled and underprivileged children. Their mission is to empower disabled citizens by rehabilitating them and integrating them into mainstream society. They have a home for rehabilitated physically challenged people that provides free shelter, food, clothing, medical aid, and appliances. Around 50 children with loco-motor disability and associated problems are attended to and provided with special medical care.
The school for specially-abled children, Sangamam, provides free education. In Village-based rehabilitation, differently abled people, as well as communities, are involved in the rehabilitation process. They are organized into Self Help Groups for their development and get access to different government schemes. Early Intervention Center aims to intervene as early as possible and minimize disability so that the child can reach the highest potential. They cater to the needs of the children under 5 years. 30 Special children have been served so far, out of which 8 have been mainstreamed.
Amar Foundation is a trust, with a mission to generate employment for the rural poor and handicapped. They have 65 employees of which around 25 are specially-abled. Sri S. Ramakrishnan, the founder was awarded the Amazing Indians Award for his extraordinary work and selfless devotion.
The vision of the organisation is to work towards empowerment of the less privileged, oppressed and deprived women and children, youth, artisans, landless, unorganized and migrant labourers, and the farming community through a process of organization and participation.
The organisation came into existence with the hard work of like-minded individuals headed by Mr. Joseph Xavier and Mrs. Amala Nayagi who had the passion to render services to the underprivileged, oppressed, women, children and differently abled in the most backward areas of Ponnamaravathi Taluk, Pudukottai District. It is a charitable, non-profit, non-political, non-communal organization, committed to the objectives of Annai Charitable and educational Trust.
Mr. Joseph Xavier is the Founder of this Trust. He has completed his Diploma in Civil Engineering and is a Civil Contractor by profession. He has put all his earnings to promote Annai Charitable and educational Trust to mould the young ones as the modern architects since he believes in the statement of Steven Covey that, "Empowerment is the fire ignited within the person that unleashes their talents, ingenuity, and creativity to do whatever is necessary with the principles agreed upon to accomplish common values, vision and mission."

The primary objective of ASHWINI is to establish a health system that is accessible, acceptable, effective and sustainable. It should be owned and managed by the people themselves. The most important aspect of this health intervention is the strong emphasis on involving the adivasi community and in training adivasi youth to deliver the services.
ASHWINI believe that communities can be empowered by a participatory development process of capacity building and decentralization that culminates in community owned and managed programs and institutions. Ownership of institutions that cater to the mainstream population is a powerful tool in bringing about a change in social equations.
20,000 tribals who are members are the primary beneficiaries of the project. A majority of the tribals live below the poverty line and literacy rates are still very low. Illnesses that are directly related to poverty like malnutrition, tuberculosis, anemia and water borne diseases continue to be a major problem for these communities.
