Akshar Trust has been involved with the education and care of hearing impaired children in Vadodara for 25 years. During this period the Centre has moved location six times. In the last four years they have commenced construction of a building for the Institute at Sherkhi, on the outskirts of the city. The progress is slow but consistent, and the need for funds is pressing. 40% of the construction remains pending. The Centre is also in need of procuring Buses. The current shortfall of funds is to the tune of Rs. 60 Lakhs.
About 405 students have been associated with Akshar over a period of time. Currently there are 160 students. Akshar Trust also conducts a Teacher Training Programme, which is recognized by the Rehabilitation Council of India.
The Centre is a non-profit, voluntary and secular organization. No hearing impaired child is refused admission. It works to provide opportunities so that the students grow up to be educated, independent and self- sufficient individuals.
Akshar Trust has approval under section 35AC of the Income Tax Act, 1961 from the Government of India for the Building Project. Thus donations towards the building project are 100% Tax Exempt. Donations to the Trust are IT Exempted under Section 80-G.
