About Us


We at Pratheksha believe that, it is the kindness within you that makes a big difference in your efforts (however small they are!). All you need is the intent to help. Then, every moment will present you an opportunity to seize life, to make a difference and to find peace.

Pratheksha is a nonprofit charitable trust that works to enrich the lives of underprivileged children through education, mentorship and access to quality healthcare. Founded in 2012 by Srishti Innovative a leading technology company, the Trust was started with the noble intent of preserving the rights of each and every child to be educated, live healthy and happy lives. The Foundation began its work in Kerala and now finds support globally. We have an established network of sponsors and well wishers in India and overseas, and have been fortunate to have Kerala Cultural Society of Metropolitan, Washington as one of our patrons.

Our Approach

Our Approach


 

Pratheksha strives to achieve lasting, wide-scale success in India's educational landscape. We believe that sustainable development of lesser privileged communities can be achieved only if we as a society have the best interests of our children in our heart and if each one of us actively participates in the process.

Child Centric Development

Child centric development is key to all our endeavors and we help families of the mentees to develop structure and skills they need to provide a safe and healthy environment for children to realize their full potential.

Our Vision and Mission

Vision

A World where every child
  • is healthy, happy and secure.
  • has the freedom to develop knowledge and skills to craft a better future.

Mission

  • Nurture a safe learning environment where he/she has access to quality education, shelter and affordable healthcare.
  • Empower every child through positive mentorship and life skill training so he or she develops into a self reliant, successful citizen of the world to ensure alignment.

Working

The involvement of the members is personal. Not only do they help in the management of the Trust but also mentor and get actively involved in the lives of the children. We cherish the personal attention and care we are able to extend to each of our wards and closely follow their progress in academics and in life.

  • Identify children from less fortunate financial and social background.
  • Offer the most suitable and viable opportunity for education.
  • Nurture an environment of Trust, Respect and Freedom.
  • Inculcate a sense of Pride and Belonging.
  • Encourage Strong Mentor and Mentee Communication.
  • 100% of the Donation goes to the Sponsored Children.

Real Life Successes

Real Life Successes

We have had the rare opportunity to touch the lives of several deserving children in our effort to influence the educational landscape of the country. We rejoice at the achievements of each of our mentees.

Pratheksha the Beginning

In the Fall of 2012, the founders Krishnadas and Preetha came across the heart riveting story in Mathrubhumi of a mother, Chellamma and her two children, Manikandan and Perumal. The Children raised in poverty, beat all odds to excel in academics and emerge winners in life. Srishti Innovative (the parent company) decided to assist these deserving children in their endeavor and Pratheksha was born. We worked with the mother and children and garnered support from willing donors to ensure that the children could continue their education.

Overcoming Challenges

Kudos to Amal and Tancy from Fr. Agostino Vicini’s Special School for Hearing Impaired, who through sheer grit and determination have overcome myriad challenges to get straight A+s in all subjects in SSLC. They have consistently done well in academics and extra-curricular activities.

Several of the students of the same school mentored under Akshara have learnt vocational skills such as embroidery, craft art using natural material, produce agarbattis, design garments and create office stationary.

Artistic Laurels

Artistic and highly gifted Divya K, a mentee from Mulleria School, has won several awards and prizes in story writing and dancing at state level. We at Pratheksha are proud of her achievements and hope she realizes her dreams and wish her luck for her future!
