AkarakA Inspires – Mentoring


Our Students

  • Student selection process

    We work in conjunction with educational institutions and NGO’s to identify students who show great promise, but are financially struggling to stay in school.

Our Better World

The team at Singapore based, Our Better World, certainly do make it better. They recently travelled to the Philippines to meet with some of the students from our first ever graduating class.

They discussed dreams, aspirations, and how the AkarakA scholarship has helped them on their journey.

So that we could all share this experience Our Better World kindly created this fantastic video that inspires us every day. Watch it now. We promise you’ll love it.

Volunteers from Deutsche Bank and AkarakA mentors spent a Saturday morning with our students, facilitating a MBTI personality typing session. Students discovered their preference type and were given some time to do a self-assessment prior to the test. Many found themselves quite self-aware. Thanks again to DB volunteers for running a great session.
