Akanksha Foundation

Website design and development

The Akanksha Foundation is a non-profit organisation that works in Mumbai and Pune with a mission to provide children from low-income communities with high-quality education. For over 25 years, Akanksha has educated children from low-income communities - first, through its after-school centers, and since 2007, through the Akanksha Schools. 

Akanksha approached us with a request to redesign its website to reflect its new organizational emphasis on improving government schools through the Akanksha School Project. After speaking with the Akanksha teams and visiting their schools, we completely overhauled the website content and developed a new, easily navigable information architecture. We incorporated rich photography and artwork from Akanksha students, as well as custom iconography and graphs, to highlight Akanksha’s unique, playful personality. Finally, we took care to make sure the website could be sustained by the Akanksha team by creating a style guide and developing maintenance guidelines for reference.
