Akshara High School began with the concept of creating a friendly environment for the education of children in the vicinity of their homes. Over the past eight years we have successfully developed ourselves as a ‘Neighborhood School’ in Kandivili, Mumbai. The school’s motto is to focus on social inclusion for educational and economic growth and to level inequalities ingrained due to gender, caste, economic and religious discrimination. Education in today’s economic realities is an expensive option for parents of young children. While we aim to provide education at par with the foremost educational institutions in India, we cannot make the process of education expensive and inaccessible to people from the middle and economically weaker strata of society. So to make education affordable and accessible, the fee structure at the school has been kept at a basic minimum. Keeping the above in mind, the School has to provide the funds for the infrastructure, educational material as well as better pay scales for teaching and non-teaching staff.
