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.
ANEW - Association for Non-traditional Employment for Women, based in Anna Nagar, Chennai, is an NGO committed to the cause of upliftment of underprivileged women.
Young, underprivileged women are selected and trained so that they can become financially independent. They have trained over 9500 candidates since the inception and currently train around 900 candidates per annum.
The training courses include: Auto/Car driving, Home nursing (co-certified by Sundaram Medical Foundation), Basic Computer Applications (co-certified by NIIT Foundation), Basic IT program customised for hearing impaired (co-certified by NIIT Foundation), Desk Top Publishing Applications (co-certified by NIIT Foundation), TALLY & Accounting (co-certified by Veetech software solutions), Web Designing (co-certified by NIIT Foundation), Optometry (co-certified by Sight Care Foundation).
All their courses have mandatory spoken English and counselling classes to improve their scope of employability. Internships are provided whenever there are corporate opportunities available."
Three like-minded friends in the year 2006 related closely to the need for quality education and believed a solution that creates educationally empowered youth capable of active participation and development of the community they belong to will make them self-reliant, and self-sustainable.
Thus, Bhumi – India’‘s largest independent youth volunteering organisation was established in the year 2006 with a vision to help build a more influential, equal and socially conscious society and a mission to drive social change by fostering an environment where young adults & children learn, lead and thrive. Bhumi as a platform enables over 20,000 volunteers in over 12 cities across India for causes like education, environment, animals and community welfare.
With an aim to render quality education, Bhumi provides comprehensive educational support for over 25,000 underprivileged children across India to help them break the cycle of poverty. Bhumi bridges the gaps in formal education and opportunities by providing language and STEAM education, life-skills support and scholarships for higher education:
- through volunteers at orphanages during weekends
- at low-income (private and government) schools with development support for teachers
- education at after-school community centres in urban slums
Most of our volunteers are students or working professionals under the age of 30 and go through mandatory orientation and in return gain immensely through our Leadership programme. Through this platform, the volunteers progress to more leadership roles and responsibility where they switch to education sector from the experiences gained from Bhumi. While holistic education is imparted to the children, Bhumi’‘s young volunteers are also transformed into socially conscious leaders in the education sector.
DEAN Foundation provides Palliative Care services to the urban poor of Chennai, Coimbatore and Kancheepuram districts. Patients are referred to DEAN Foundation by doctors. They also approach through word of mouth referrals, website and through social media.
Over 80% of the patients are from the lower income group. With no financial means, terminal illnesses like cancer leaves them traumatised both physically and mentally. Cancer patients form about 78% of the total patients treated.
The organisation primarily works in the area of pain relief. Once diagnosed with terminal illness, treatments are gradually stopped and patients are only left with pain management during the rest of their lives. This involves both medicines that are ingested as well as periodic change in dressing of the tumours. The family members of the patients are also trained to nurse the patients and administer the medicines as required.
There are two forms of services - Out-patient services and Home Based Care. Out-patient care is for patients who are able to come to the office or have family members who are mobile. Home Based Care is primarily for patients who are immobile. In addition to this they also work with the Department of health & Family Welfare and State health Society, Govt. of Tamil Nadu actively to provide training and create awareness.
The foundation of EKAM Foundation lies in the belief that every child has the freedom to live and none should be denied the right to healthcare. Thus, they are committed to the healthcare of neonates, children, adolescents, and mothers from underprivileged communities. Their primary focus is on rural health and they aim to achieve this through direct medical support and indirectly through community awareness, empowerment, and participation.
EKAM intervenes to bring a desired positive impact on the overall life-saving scenario by providing support and enhancing their health through several initiatives. They supplement care at primary health centers, district hospitals, and other tertiary care government hospitals by training nurses, helping in maintaining critical equipment, transporting sick infants to the nearest district hospitals, providing lab test support, drugs and medicines in select government hospitals. In addition to this, several camps, training programs, empowerment workshops are organized to create awareness among adolescent girls, expectant mothers, and the community.
Their mission is to complete the government health system and not replace it. As of last year, EKAM has reached out to over 1.08 million children and as many families through its multi-pronged initiatives.
