Raising Children



The 'Art for Akanksha' programme is part of the curriculum and develops vocational skills and creative expression in our children.

Enter an Akanksha art class and you are dazzled by a sea of colour. Happy children sing while they paint and produce a variety of products. These include: hand painted cards, attractive T-shirts, gift bags, wrapping paper, telephone diaries, photo frames, calendars and paintings.

The children's mothers help in the finishing of the items. The sale proceeds of the products are divided between the children and mothers involved in the project. Payment to the children is banked in an account set by Akanksha for each child. The balance of the profits is channeled back into Akanksha projects.

When you buy an Akanksha product you do more than buy a beautiful work of art. You lend your support to the creativity and enthusiasm in every child that is the source of that beauty.

Children and Children

Encourage your children to support Akanksha's children by buying Akanksha products. Birthday parties will be more fun and meaningful with Akanksha birthday packs with theme based invitation cards, gift bags, T-shirts and return gifts. 


Cards for every occasion: Diwali, Christmas, Birthdays and other greeting cards. Each card is hand painted by an Akanksha child. Choose from one of our many designs or let us design cards exclusively for you.

Akanksha cards are spontaneous expressions of our children's imagination : elephants and peacocks, butterflies, spaceships and abstract patterns.

For corporations we design cards styled to a company's particular requirements. Give us details of your products, services and needs and our children will do the rest. Special rates are available for large orders.


Wear an Akanksha T-shirt or gift one to a friend. Akanksha offers a range of unique prints. The elephant and sun T-shirts have been designed by Babu and Naidu respectively.

White: Rs.150
Coloured: Rs.175


The telephone diary combines a collection of Akanksha's best artworks with photographs taken by French photographer Cedric Dordevich.



Begin each day in 2000 with the Akanksha millenium calendar, designed exclusively for Akanksha by World Studio, New York. This calendar is the latest addition to our range of products and is the perfect gift for the New Year.


Made out of our environmentally friendly, handmade paper, these hand-painted bags are available in 5 sizes. These bags are ideal for packing corporate and personal gifts.

Gifts are more attractive when they are wrapped in Akanksha's hand dyed, multicoloured tissue sheets. Colour coordinate with our gift bags to make your presents look extra special.
