Education, being the backbone of a successful society, need to be a vital part of every citizen. Every individual, irrespective of their geographical or economical background have the right to get the right education and everyone must be given equal opportunity to get it. But, sadly, in our country, most of the impoverished group of people often remain deprived of right education.
The goal of getting the right education goes astray when people find it difficult to even fulfil the basic need of getting food, shelter and healthcare. AK Mishra Foundation believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, unemployment, poverty or human rights—there's no greater place than the corridors of education.

- Community-Based Interventions– Community-based interventions are the interventions or small-scale programmes delivered in community settings, such as schools and youth services. These programs educate people about various issues that they face in their daily lives personally or being a part of a particular community, as an educated and aware person tackle the situation way too wisely.
