dear friends

Here is the glimpse of Akshara's campaign launch and the plan for the next
10 days published in the second largest english daily in Mumbai.

Also would like to share that Akshara was awarded the HT's Celebrating
Change maker award at the hand of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

regards
