About

Akshar Foundation is an award-winning nonprofit organisation operating in Assam with an innovative, business-oriented approach to education. Serving a community of stone quarry workers that has experienced multi-generational illiteracy, the Akshar team has developed a tiered teaching model that encourages older students who have achieved a faster progression to teach younger students. This model enables Akshar to operate at a 1:100 teacher to student ratio, and helps students to fast track their learning through teaching.
