AXF aspires to enable the educated affluent who display a social responsibility.Our idea lies in redistributing society’s available resources to bridge a gap in the system.By enabling utilization of abilities of the affluent segment of the society (educated housewives, students, and able-bodied retired individuals) for social good with limited investment in training, the model brings forth an opportunity for a section of human resource lying unused in society. By helping with a small contribution of their time,the educated can tutor, mentor,guide and help first generation learners dwelling in the slums of Mumbai find their true potential. Objectives: -Help students learn and apply skills in real life for a stable future -Inject better values and upbringing to act more responsibly -Enhance childhood experience -Bring the privileged and underprivileged to work together to create a more equitable society -Promote optimal use of resources through redistribution drives -Focus on nurturing ambition in girls and inculcating gender equality.
