He gripped the spoon tightly, shying away and looking through the corner of his eyes. In just an audible whisper, he said that his favorite meal was rice and sambhar, that he also liked sweet. He put another spoonful of rice into his mouth with a happy smile. 13 year old Prateek is a special child suffering from cerebral palsy. Born in a middle class family, Prateek goes to the Aruna Chetana, a school for children with special needs where Akshaya Patra also serves the mid-day meals.

Akshaya Patra features in Wharton

Posted: 12 May 2012 04:05 AM PDT

Each school day, more than a million children in 6,500 schools across seven Indian states eagerly await the vehicle that brings their midday meal. For many of them, the food provided by the Bangalore-based Akshaya Patra Foundation is their first, and perhaps only, meal of the day. The promise of an ample hot lunch brings them to school regularly. The foundation's hope is that the nutrition helps them think clearly once they are there.

A heart touching tale of a Donor.

Posted: 12 May 2012 02:35 AM PDT

After a long telephonic conversation about Akshaya Patra, Rajeev (Assistant Manager – Tele Collection) managed to get an appointment from Mrs. Reddy (name changed) a Headmistress of a Primary school. Rajeev was trying to schedule the appointment in the second half of the day as the place was quite far away, but she told in an uncompromising voice "be in my office sharp at 9 o' clock." Next morning Rajeev reached school 10 minutes before time and met the donor (Mrs. Reddy). She looked very stern and strict and reminded him of his old school days.

“The child that is hungry must be fed…”

Posted: 12 May 2012 02:26 AM PDT

The twentieth century dawned on the eve of a World War, announcing an era of change that would forever reshape humanity and the way it defined itself. As a new political face of the world emerged, millions reeled in the aftermath of a war that closed the chapter to an enchanted 19th century and marked the beginning of the faster paced, often more gruesome 1900's. It was no wonder then, after the atrocities and ravages of a war, that global leaders sought for a revival of the human spirit through a special emphasis on the inalienable rights of us all as intelligent, conscientious beings.

The role of NGOs

Posted: 12 May 2012 02:18 AM PDT

Plush luxury juxtaposed with abject poverty, rich elegance surrounded by a need for bare human necessity. That is contradiction of India today. Poised to become a global superpower, with a 7 % annual growth rate (one of the highest in the world), it has a rapidly expanding economy that will create a projected 200 million jobs in the next 20 yrs. Yet the lack of basic facilities facing millions of the nation's people can hardly be ignored.
