Miracle of Rs.750 !

About Akshaya Patra
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organization , that operates on a Public-Private -Partnership Model. It is the implementing partner of the “Mid-day Meal Scheme” with steady support from Govt.of India, various State Govts.and inestimable support from many Corporates, Philanthropic Donors and Well-Wishers. By implementing the Mid-day Meal Scheme in the Govt. Schools and Govt. Aided Schools, the Akshaya Patra strives to fight issues like Hunger and Malnutrition of impoverished & excluded families of India and also aims to bring Children to Schools under “Right to Education.”
The Foundation has grown from humble beginnings in the year 2000, serving just 1,500 children across 5 schools. Today Akshaya Patra is the world’s largest (not-for-profit run) mid-day meal programme serving wholesome food to over 1.4 million children from 10,845 schools across 10 states in India. It aims to accomplish bold goal of feeding 5 million children by 2020.
The Foundation is of the belief that there is a dire need for the operations of Akshaya Patra to be replicated so that it realizes the vision that “No child in India shall be deprived of Education because of Hunger.”

What Can We Do ?
It takes just Rs. 750 to feed a Child for a Year. Feeding the school children is an excellent cause & dharma. We should become part of this noble effort in service to the society, with passion, dedication and excellence. May the world bear witness of how such amazing things can be done with responsibility to care for people and the environment.
Let us make a beginning by contributing at least Rs. 2,250 to feed 3 Children for a year or multiples of Rs.750.
