Significant Life, Organisational Experience(s):  
Growing up in a small town in Manipur, Acheng’s exposure to social work began at a very young age right from fundraising for children’s summer camps to volunteer for cleanliness drives in her community to engaging with children in brothels of Mumbai. Acheng had the opportunity to work with the Akanksha Foundation where she assisted in a project called, ‘The Ladoo Project’, that provided nutritious food as a supplement to the diet of underweight children in the school.
Two months of building rapport with 10 children and their families with rigorous monitoring of their diet and food habits not only made the project a success but brought immense joy and fulfillment to Acheng as she saw the children healthier, happier and performing better in class.  Acheng sees development from the empowerment lens enabling people to see their own potential by providing equitable opportunities to everyone.
