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.

193 students have graduated, moving onto further education or paid employment.

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.

First round of On-boarding session for Singapore based students in 2017!
These students got a glimpse of our mentorship session which was an interactive training on ‘Personal Branding’ facilitated by professional trainer Shirley Han from Stafford Chan Training.

Our sincere thanks to Shirley for conducting an impactful session for Akaraka scholars.

A big vote of thanks to Deutsche Bank and its employees to volunteer for the event and helping in the entire set up.

This was the first session for academic year 2017 organized by Akaraka mentors and the team has many more exciting and informative sessions underway. As usual a great team effort by Akaraka mentors’ team! See MoreSee Less
