"Basic education is one of the most effective investments in improving economies and creating literate, self-reliant and healthy societies"and above all a nation:
"Akshaya Patra is one such organization, which was founded to help those who are suffering from hunger. The name-Akshaya Patra is derived from Mahabharata, one of the great epics of India. Akshaya Patra was a vessel given to Yudhishtira by Surya and the vessel had the powers to produce un limited supply of food each day. This foundation started with the vision that “No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger”.
The first mid-day meal program was launched in Bangalore, where the foundation served 1500 children across 5 schools. With an increasing support base, this foundation is reaching out to 12 lakh children every day. Currently, they are working on a mission of reaching 50 lakh children by 2020.
With"Objectives of the mid-day meal scheme
- avoid classroom hunger,
- increase school enrolment,
- increase school attendance
- improve socialization among castes
- address malnutrition &
- empower women through employment
The truth of the matter is that the children of India need our help. The country is home to nearly 44% of the world’s malnourished children and many do not have access to a single meal in a day. If food is not available, education is neglected, perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty.
Let us help the great cause which Akshaya Patra is working towards....Ur little help can fill the stomach of many hungry children!!!
