*4 AKSHARA is a remarkable program started by an even more remarkable woman, Dr. Harsha Joshi. Since 2005, Akshara has worked to empower the most marginalized, lower caste rural youth (particularly girls) in Maharashtra (the western, central region of India). It provides daily educational support toward the end of achieving equality and independence. Akshara serves more than 500 students in 7 villages from elementary students to pre-university/college-level students, and Adivasi and tribal adults. In addition to education support, Akshara also helps participants secure their first job once they graduate.
