Experience the Joy of Giving. Celebrate #DaanUtsav2019 with Akshaya Patra

joy of giving

The Joy of Giving Week, now known as Daan Utsav gives all of us an opportunity to contribute to the needy in some way or the other. Alike past years, Akshaya Patra is celebrating Daan Utsav this year too. Your choice of celebrating Joy of Giving Week with Akshaya Patra will beautifully change lives of children empowering them with health and education.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. – William James.

This thought aptly resonates with the spirit of Daan Utsav, an annual event observed in India during the week of Gandhi Jayanti i.e. from 2nd October to 8th October. Previously known as the Joy of Giving Week, it is a week-long celebration of generosity and philanthropy signifying the importance of giving back to the society. Remarkably, each year, people from all walks of life come together and selflessly contribute during this week with the notion that ‘we all have something to give’. People not only limit themselves to contributing money, but also contribute much in kind by volunteering their time, and sharing their skills and resources with the ones who are less privileged. Daan Utsav gives one and all the opportunity to bring a desirable change in the society and uphold the perspective of ‘live together, grow together, and progress together’.

Why Akshaya Patra celebrates Daan Utsav?
Children are the storehouse of joy, vitality, optimism, and hope; and it is our responsibility to ensure every child has a cheerful childhood. To keep this aspect of children intact, The Akshaya Patra Foundation has been relentlessly working for the past 18 years to provide the much-needed school meals for children across India. The mid-day meal opens the gates of school for children, welcoming them to a world of learning, exploring, and growing. The mid-day meal is a source of nourishment and acts as a supporting pillar of education for these children. And it gets reflected in their health, confidence, and aspirations. Presently, the Foundation provides nutritious mid-day meals to more than 1.8 million children, on each school day across 51 locations of 13 States and 1 Union Territory. Akshaya Patra celebrates Daan Utsav with full fervour with the sole purpose of generating maximum support for these children.

Celebrate Independence day by supporting Akshaya Patra, an Ngo in India

independence day

This 15th August 2019, we will commemorate our 73rd Independence Day. Along with the celebrations, indeed it’s a wonderful time to reflect on the valuable gifts, we as Indians, have received as a community and nation as a whole. We are truly fortunate to have been born in free India thanks to the immeasurable sacrifices our freedom fighters made for us and our country.

However, even after 72 years of gaining Independence, we are yet to cover a long distance in terms of education and health of children. History resonates the fact that education owes the power to bring revolutions and transformations in any society. It sets the pace for development. Along with honing the decision-making skill, education harnesses leadership capabilities of people, making it vital to be imparted from the very beginning of an individual’s life – Childhood!

In keeping with this outlook, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, a non-profit organisation in India has been working incessantly over the past eighteen years to transform lives of children by providing them with food for education. And presently on each school day, we feed 17,65,597 school children across 45 locations of 12 states of India.

So, this Independence Day celebrate the spirit of freedom by empowering children with healthy meals on every single school day. Your support can potentially end classroom hunger from the grassroot level. Who knows, the next young “navy official” or “army cadet” is waiting for your help in their classrooms!

Celebrate World Health Day 2019 with Akshaya Patra Children

World Health Day 2019

The predominance of nutrition crisis—covering both undernutrition and over nutrition—is a crucial pointer of a nation’s health. As India strives to achieve its social development goals, hunger is one such complex realities, which looks up for greater responsiveness.

7th April, the occasion of World Health Day presents an apt moment to review our interventions as Government, individuals, and NGOs to address India’s hunger woes.

Healthy food has a significant role to play in the holistic development and growth of children. Right nutrition at the early stages of childhood protects a child from various diseases and infections that can impede age-appropriate growth. Indeed, a healthy childhood paves the way for a healthy life. And, this is where The Akshaya Patra Foundation’s role becomes noteworthy. Alike World Health Day, which aims to provide universal health care for all, Akshaya Patra intends to give every child a healthy start to life by providing wholesome and nutrition-rich mid-day meals.

On 28 November 2001, The Supreme Court of India guided the State Governments to implement the Mid-Day Meal Scheme by feeding every child in every Government and Government-aided primary school with cooked mid-day meals. The minimum nutritional content of the school meals was fixed to 300 calories and 8-12 gms of protein on every school day. The specified nutritional content has since been enhanced to 450 calories and 12 gms protein for children in primary schools and 700 calories and 20 gms protein for children in upper-primary schools.

The mid-day meal guidelines also illustrate that the meals served must provide the essential micronutrients such as – iron, zinc, folic acid, vitamin A, etc., to the beneficiary children so as to ensure proper growth for them. Akshaya Patra diligently abides by every guideline while preparing the mid-day meals.

The NGO in India, Akshaya Patra also serves nutritious food to 3 to 6 years old children, pregnant women and lactating mothers in Anganwadi centres – a step to provide a healthy foundation during the critical stages of growth. Currently, we serve healthy meals to 1,61,410 children (aged 3-6 years) at 4,786 Anganwadi centres and 6,000 pregnant women and lactating mothers across 323 centres.

BEYOND IMPROVING NUTRITION                                                                                                                                          Akshaya Patra’s understanding of improving nutrition for children is not just limited to increasing access to healthy food. It also covers hygiene and cleanliness while preparing nutrition-rich meals every day. The visible improvement in health and performance of our beneficiary children in school activities are a testimony of the quality food served to them regularly.

Akshaya Patra makes it possible with the help of its 41 state-of-the-art kitchens. The food safety measures in the operations process have been recognised and appreciated across national and international platforms.

Thus, by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Programme and Anganwadi Feeding Programme, Akshaya Patra is laying a healthy and strong foundation for growing children thereby contributing to the theme of World Health Day: “Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere.”

This World Health Day, we’re calling on everybody’s support to help us address the classroom hunger for young children in India. Be a Health Champion by gifting them the everlasting goodness of nutrition.

70th Republic Day – Let’s progress together!

Republic day

Republic Day is a moment of pride as the entire nation comes together to celebrate the power of complete democracy. It also signifies the essence of equality without any discrimination. Akshaya Patra, a mid-day meal NGO also promotes equality by ensuring each child receives nutritious meals and rightful education.

The Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 and to commemorate this historic event, each year 26th January is celebrated as Republic Day in India. This made India an independent republic with a democratic government system i.e. the citizens of the country have the right and power to elect their representative rather than being ruled by a monarch. Indeed significant, but this also comes with the responsibility of empowering citizens to be good decision makers.

The Preamble of the Constitution of India clearly upholds ‘EQUALITY of status and of opportunity’ for each and every citizen of the country. And, this is true for access to food and education too. Access to food and education are fundamental rights of every citizen and is extremely essential for proper growth and development of children. The Government along with many NGOs are already working towards ensuring access to these basic needs and The Akshaya Patra Foundation is one among them. An NGO in India, Akshaya Patra supports education of children by providing them with nutritious school lunch on each school day. This meal has been instrumental in bringing children to school and helping them continue their education. Wholesome meals, regular lessons, and exposure to sports and co-curricular activities promote holistic development among children, who in the near future will be the decision makers of the country.

India is a land of thriving talents and skills – an element that is vital in continuous progress of the country; all we need to do is, provide a platform for these talents and skills to develop. And, schooling is the first step! Agreed, it is a humongous task to bring each child under the ambit of health and education, but it is possible to reach the last child if we all work unitedly towards it. This Republic Day, pledge to feed a child and partake in the progress of the country. By contributing online donation, you can instantly transform young lives in the most desirable way. By pledging to support children, you will also uphold the element of equal opportunity to nutrition and education for children.

Only empowered children can contribute in the progress of the country. So, on this proud moment of celebrating 70th Republic Day, let’s pledge to progress together by providing adequate support to children of the nation. Your one step towards creating a change will manifest in the most desirable way in the near future.

Raksha Bandhan – Binding Cherished Memories

Happy Raksha Bandhan

The history of Raksha Bandhan dates back thousands of years. It is one of the oldest traditions observed in India to celebrate the special bond between brothers and sisters. It is an annual festival observed on the last day of the Shraavana month (Hindu lunar calendar) which typically falls in August. On this day, the sister ties the sacred thread – Rakhi – on her brother’s wrist and prays for his well-being and prosperity by performing the ritual of tilak and aarti; whereas the brother promises to protect and take care of his sister under all circumstances, and also presents her with gifts.

Each school day, Akshaya Patra nourishes millions of children across India. Among so many children there are many siblings who study in the same school and equally benefits from the mid-day meal. This Raksha Bandhan, we bring you a small story of one such brother-sister duo who believes in ‘sharing is caring’.

Kaveri and Darshan

Akshaya Patra Beneficiaries

Kaveri and Darshan study in the same school and has the vision to serve the nation and the people. Darshan, a student of Standard VII aspires to join the Indian Army in the future; and his sister, Kaveri, a student of Standard V aspires to be a doctor. Their parents work as street vendors to support the family, but despite hardships, this brother-sister duo is determined to achieve their dreams.

When asked about the kind of relationship they share with each other, Darshan being the elder one replied promptly,

“We believe in sharing is caring. We share our food, toys, stationeries, and even sweets. Both of us love the pulao that is served as a part of our school lunch. I promise to take care of my sister at all times. I want to help my sister with her studies in whatever way I can, and want to see her achieve the dream of becoming a doctor.”

To this Kaveri quickly added,

“And, I want to see my brother as an Army Officer. And, I want to be the first one to salute him.”

Well, as is evident, they not only share things, but also share the same wish for each other!

Alike Kaveri and Darshan, there are many brothers and sisters who despite all odds always care for each other and support each other’s dreams. And, celebrating this special bond of love, care, and protection,

Akshaya Patra wishes everyone a very Happy Raksha Bandhan!

Be a part of this celebration and support the bond of siblings by providing them the access to food and education. This Raksha Bandhan donate to Akshaya Patra in honour of your sibling.

Social issues

But, it is also aggressively addressing these disheartening and acute hurdles with promising and potential interventions such as:


Implication of these initiatives

Though it may take a while before we can declare India as a hunger-free nation; yet the above-mentioned interventions have directly impacted and have shown results in countering the current health and nutrition status among children.

But, for that, we need to begin nourishing, nurturing, and moulding them from their childhood. Akshaya Patra gives you a platform to get involved in supporting education of children by providing them with wholesome food. This Independence Day, join hands with Akshaya Patra to give the nation healthy, educated, and resourceful youths. #Pledgetofeed.

Father’s Day celebrates the caring and protective spirit of fathers

Happy Fathers Day

Father is an epitome of protection and care. Studies reveal that men are biologically programmed to care and provide. No wonder then, that our fathers show their love best by doing something for us. The third Sunday of every June honours fathers worldwide. Non-profit organisations around the world use the occasion to pay tribute to fathers on this day.

How did Father’s Day originate?

There are several interesting stories that are associated with the celebration of this day. In most countries, Father’s Day is observed on the third Sunday of June, but in Europe and Latin America, fathers are honoured on St Joseph’s Day, which is a traditional Catholic holiday that falls on March 19. The Spanish and Portuguese brought the sentiment to Latin America.

A story goes that Sonora Dodd from Spokane, a city in the state of Washington in United States of America, was raised by her father – a single parent – along with five other siblings. When she heard a Mother’s Day sermon in 1910, she felt that fathers must be honoured too. So Dodd began a campaign for a day dedicated to celebrating fathers. The first such Father’s Day was finally celebrated in Spokane in 1910, followed by several towns and cities in America.

Another story is about one Grace Golden Clayton from Fairmont, West Virginia. There was a mine explosion in a nearby town that had killed more than 360 men. Grace argued that the children of these men needed a day or time to remember and pay tributes to their fathers and so, the day was celebrated in 1908.

Whatever the history, it’s a wonderful day that unites the world in honouring fathers. Apart from other bodies, non-profit organisations like Akshaya Patra channelise resources to honour fathers who encourage their children towards education. The organisation involves people on the occasion to help feed the children during its school lunch programme. Several donors come forward to sponsor a child or sponsor kitchen equipment every year as a gesture of honouring their fathers. Many of the Foundation’s employees are fathers, striving hard to give their children a good life and the organisation values their efforts.

What can you do on Father’s Day?

You can choose to be a child’s godfather on Father’s Day. All you need to do is sponsor a child and help Akshaya Patra feed millions of children by this single gesture. This may be through an online donation or a fundraising campaign.

Beneficiary schools organise events in their premises, encouraging children to write, draw or express feelings for their fathers in several other ways. You may find such a school near you in these states – Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Odisha, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Tripura and Uttar Pradesh. You may choose to visit some of these schools and talk to children and teachers during lunch time and witness for yourself How Akshaya Patra’s meals benefit children.

Father’s Day this year can be channelised towards furthering the education of children through nutritious meals. You may easily do so by sponsoring a child.
