Since its inception in March 2000, Akshara has touched the lives of over 800,000 children in the state of Karnataka, India. Over the last thirteen years, Akshara has run multiple programmes that have all been designed to be comprehensive, scalable, replicable and cost-effective remedial or supplementary education solutions.
All Akshara's programs are child-centric and are designed to ensure that : enrolment in schools increase, drop-outs from schools decrease, and that children's learning outcomes and overall development improve. In particular, Akshara works in close partnership with the Education Department of the Government of Karnataka and the Department of Women and Child Welfare to supplement existing primary school and pre-primary school programs.

Every year since 2005, the non government organization Pratham has facilitated an innovative exercise: that of implementing the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER). This enormous annual task engages citizens across the country in understanding and tracking children's ability to read and do basic arithmetic via the participation of local organizations and institutions in every rural district in the country. It is the largest household survey of children conducted in India by citizens' groups, carried out by more than 25,000 volunteers and covering over 700,000 children in 15,000 villages each year. It is also the only annual source of information regarding learning levels of children in elementary school.
