What can Rs. 750 get us? A nice meal out, some nice clothes to wear, two movie tickets – things that will bring us a few hours of enjoyment. But what if Rs. 750 could achieve more than we realise, such as a daily meal every day for an entire year! It sounds almost impossible, but it’s not.
That’s what Akshaya Patra has been providing to underserved children all over the country. For every contribution of this small amount that the Foundation receives, one child will be able to eat the daily nutritious mid-day meal, and stay in school for a whole year more.
Akshaya Patra has been raising awareness of this through their Project 750 initiative which highlights the numerous things that we easily spend money on every day, and offers the alternative of using that money to provide food and education to a child for a year.
Through this year long social media initiative which has been running from March 2015, gradually people have begun to realise that they have the power to change a child’s life and one day eliminate classroom hunger in India. To help us achieve this, donate here.
