#2. The Akanksha Foundation
This not-for-profit organization has been in operation for two decades and works with a team of 200+ volunteers, mentors, teachers and managerial staff towards the education of underprivileged children. Selection of employees is thorough to see their guiding principles and reasons for working with a non-profit. Since the organization structure is largely flat, newer employees are not oriented so much on their individual roles as on the state of education in the country and the need for expertise. Their values are based on the four R’s viz. Rigour, Relevance, Relationship and Reflection.
