What is Aksharam?

Who We are?


Aksharam Educational Foundation is an educational trust that supports academically promising but financially challenged students in their educational pursuit. As of now, with the support of various like-minded and generous individuals, Aksharam has been privileged to have supported more than 300 students in their school and collegiate level education. In the process, Aksharam has disbursed close to Indian Rs.50 Lakhs to various students over the years.

The founding members and donors hope that one day, when the beneficiaries of the Trust have progressed to a level of self-sufficiency and comfort, they will endeavour to pass on the goodwill through Aksharam or similar organizations of their choice.

Our Vision


Aksharam is a not-for-profit organization conceived and established with the specific objective of helping “academically promising but financially challenged” students. The goal is to insulate the educational pursuit of such students from the financial circumstance of the family. Our aim is also to guide the student to be more responsible for the money spent on education and develop him as a good human who can emotionally connect to this cause and in turn help a few more students when he/she becomes financially independent.

Our Creative Team


We are thinking. Thinking of right now, future and past. Every step we take is thanks to our team.
As we strengthen together, we will become stronger.
