About AKIO

AKIO is a thought process to bring children of Indian origin together, encourage them to learn our traditions, cultures and relate them to origins of India roots.  AKIO thought process is carried out by is a group of volunteers committed to build a finite platform for kids of present and future generations. AKIO chose competitions as format to reach children community. These competitions are mainly focused on their creative, scientific, cultural skills and encouraging them to involve parents in their developing these skills further. AKIO is planning to invite intellectual people to share their priceless experience with children such as Science Fairs and Science Meets. AKIO also conducts programs for kids that will supplement academics, raise cultural awareness, sustain and promote interest in arts and other sports. AKIO has founded by Mohan Gavvagi around Diwali time in 2009 and celebrated their first event on November 14th Children's Day.
