hope stories

“My father is a fisherman and a weaver. My mother is a homemaker and also helps my father in weaving. Even though both my parents are into weaving, I never wanted to weave. My parents are very supportive and always encourages me to continue my education. After completing my academics, I want to get a job with a regular income and then support my family. I am confident that only school can turn all these wishes into reality. I travel 20 kilometres daily as there is no Government school in my village. The Akshaya Patra mid-day meal keeps me going till the evening as I have to walk a long distance back home.” – Krishna, Akshaya Patra beneficiary from Assam.



School – it teaches us to respect diversity in culture and religion, develop a sense of togetherness and discipline. In short, it makes us ready for life.

So, what else do we learn in schools?

A healthy school environment bestows children with the opportunity to work and co-create with others. This quality actually helps every individual in the ‘real world’ too. With sports, games, and classroom projects, teachers train children about the spirit and significance of team-building.

Studying new subjects and practicing new skills help a child grow exponentially. By encouraging children to face off the challenges, teachers and parents boost confidence – the key to a productive life.

Adopt Social Skills
By continuous interaction with teachers and children of all ages, kids develop socialisation skills. It is at school that children nurture skills such as listening, understanding, and sharing – something that is not always possible to learn at home.

What connects Akshaya Patra and schooling?
Akshaya Patra, an NGO for children has been supporting education of millions of children in need by providing them with wholesome school meals on every school day and has initiated several children-specific programmes. In 2018, the Foundation celebrated its 18th year of service to children.

What is Akshaya Patra’s ‘Back to School’ campaign all about?
Akshaya Patra’s ‘Back to school‘ is a yearly campaign. It aims to create awareness and gather support for the mid-day meals, a significant determinant that ensures continued education of children from challenging backgrounds.

We are deeply indebted to those supporters who felt the importance of the cause, participated in this campaign, and supported wholeheartedly.


Your contributions to this campaign will enable 1.76 million children with
another year of learning and healthy school lunches.
