Akshaya Patra - Build a Healthier Tomorrow

Akshaya Patra means inexhaustible vessel which can continuously supply food to the needy. I feel that hunger is the most dreadful disease faced by children in our country.

Hunger leads to malnutrition and effects the physical and mental growth and development of a child. Can we not make a Hunger free nation? I strongly believe that each one of us can make a difference to a child’s life by joining hands with The Akshaya Patra Foundation- world’s top NGO run school meal program.

Last month I visited one of the Government schools near Kengeri (Doddabasti) to donate water filters as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program. To few of our inquisitive questions about the school, performance and attendance of children the Principal of that school informed us that after Akshaya Patra Foundation started providing mid day meal in that school the number of students have drastically increased .The school has 630 children which is highest in that zone.

I feel if one meal can bring such wonderful results we should all join our hands with The Akshaya Patra Foundation and contribute towards a hunger free nation.
