There are various ways to extend help to the children who are in need. It could be through donations, through imparting skill based learning, or by organizing fund raising events. Many NGOs around the world are working towards helping needy children. The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a NGO in India implementing the mid-day meal programme to provide free lunch to children studying in Government schools. The donations towards this NGO will help many children across India to get at least one wholesome meal a day along with the much needed opportunity to receive education.
This Indian NGO gives you the platform to help the children whose only need is a little support from you. Akshaya Patra is currently providing food to 1.3 million children in India. Its operation is spread across 19 locations across the following States- Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Odisha, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu. It aims to reach out to more locations so that many more children can be benefitted.
Through this programme, the Foundation wants to counter two critical issues of hunger and illiteracy. Working towards its vision of “No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger”, it focuses on providing “unlimited food for education”. It is a well accepted notion that education can uplift a society by bringing it out from the recurring cycle of poverty. This is the reason the Foundation utilizes your charitable donations to provide food to the children so that they continue coming to school and get educated for a future where they will be able to provide for themselves.
In order to achieve the vision, the NGO has set itself a mission of feeding 5 million children by 2020. To achieve this it requires your support and contribution. When you help a child, you are sowing the seed for a prosperous tomorrow. The Foundation works in a Public-Private Partnership model. It receives aids from Government and other generous donors. But, when each citizen wishes for a brighter tomorrow then the responsibility also lies on everyone to take constructive steps for it. When you do charitable donations to help the children, you are not only providing a helping hand, rather you are transforming their lives for better.
The significance of charitable donations is that it has a positive impact regardless of whether the donation is in the form of cash or kind. For the ease of donors, Akshaya Patra has the provision of both online donations and offline donations.
