Poverty is one of the great challenges in the world today. The most effective tool in breaking the poverty cycle is education, but still more than 72 million children in the world are not going to school and 350 million children are receiving education of a very poor quality. Akran has chosen to educate children in need as a focus area of our CSR.

Through the Akran Foundation we are supporting school projects around the world helping many children receive a good education, which gives them a chance to build a better future for themselves, their families and communities. Since we began our support to education of children in India and Africa, we have seen the positive results of providing a path out of poverty and hope for the future.

Education has the power to transform children's lives, now and for generations to come. Our school projects around the world focus on these areas:

  • Grants and educational support for underprivileged students.
  • Provision of school supplies.
  • Providing essential basic amenities.
  • Promotion of educational opportunities.
  • Construction of schoolhouses for children in remote villages.
  • Funding for educators.
  • Developing and strengthening teachers' capabilities.
  • Provision of libraries.
