Akanksha is an after-school hour program and an initiative by Delhi Public School, Rohini, to enhance various skills of students from the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). Its aim is to empower children from disadvantaged communities by developing their potential through education and social skills and to mainstream them both academically and socially and to help them become self-reliant, responsible, confident and motivated young adults. Akanksha works on the holistic development of the EWS students to ensure that they grow in a healthy environment, where they have an incentive to study and perform well. This will instil in them the zeal for achievement at an early stage.
