Supported 177 Young Underprivileged Women To Complete College Education
For the past 20 years, Akshara has worked towards a gender just society, where women can live with dignity, free from violence and discrimination. The focus is on empowering young women by imparting job skills, self-improvement skills, awarding scholarships for education and educating young men to become standard-bearers for gender justice individually and within their families and communities. Akshara empowers women to be aware their rights, live without threats of violence within their homes and communities and build necessary skills to ensure well-being for themselves and their families. Young women are given financial aid to complete higher education as well. The Foundation also conducts gender education presentations at info fairs, educational institutions, and community interactions. It works closely with the State and the Police administration towards more efficient helpline numbers for women; with the Municipal bodies and public transport authorities for the safety of women. It also joins in networking with city-based and national women's and other groups for legislation and policies.

Akshara Centre's 'Empowering Dreams' is a scholarship program for girls in the age group of 16 to 21 years, pursuing higher education. These girls are predominantly from 'single female head families' based out of underprivileged communities in 2 of Mumbai's low-cost housing municipal wards. Applications are invited from such girls, following which aspiration levels and desire to pursue higher education are assessed via interviews with the applicants. The selected girls are then enrolled in the Life Skills Workshop, where they work towards developing their confidence and interpersonal skills. All the candidates undergo an evaluation at the start and end of the program in order to quantify shift in their life perspectives. The girls are urged to open bank accounts to deposit their grants, in order to encourage accountability. The program is extensively publicized to ensure it reaches its desired demographic.
