   About Us

Akanksha - a charitable trust, was formed in 1988 by the professional of different fields with the objectives to serve mentally and physically challenged persons of the society. BHEL, Haridwar allotted the building in the campus. Over the years the children have grown and it was felt that they should be trained in suitable vocations, so as to enable them to become productive members of the society. Akanksha expanded its activities in the area of vocational training and started Sheltered Work Shop.
