A Volunteer's day with Akshaya Patra

Posted: 14 May 2012 05:52 AM PDT

Letter from Bibhash Chakrabarty, a volunteer of Akshaya Patra Foundation. Akshaya Patra- the name which always reminds me of the happy smiling faces of the little angels in school uniforms. It is a unique organization feeding more than a million children every day reaching out even the remote corners of the country. How can we ask a child to go to the school when he cannot even afford a meal? Parents often tend to sacrifice their children's education as they cannot afford to meet their basic requirement of food.

You don’t need to be a superman to bring about change.

Posted: 14 May 2012 05:46 AM PDT

You don't need to be a superman to bring about change. All it requires is the will and the courage to take a small step towards the change. Vaibhav and Rashmi have set such an example. They got married on 13th December 2009. Both of them wanted to contribute towards a social cause while they tie the knot. They chose a few NGOs working for different causes and tried to help them through their wedding function.

Shining through

The Akshaya Patra Foundation made waves at the recently held PAN IIT conference in Chicago. Amongst the 2000 delegates attending the conference, were Sri Desh Deshpande, an IIT alumni and an accomplished IT professional, and his wife, Jaishree.

A Teacher speaks about Akshaya Patra

Posted: 14 May 2012 04:18 AM PDT

"Akshaya Patra has indeed helped us," says Vasantha Kumari. According to this Head Mistress of Maharani Girls' High School, things have changed drastically for most of the teachers and children that she works with. Before Akshaya Patra, it was the teachers of the school, including Vasantha Kumari, who were given the onus of ensuring lunch was provided on time. "We could not concentrate on teaching as much as we would have liked," she says.

CISCO Employees Visit Akshaya Patra Kitchen

Posted: 14 May 2012 04:15 AM PDT

A simple building on a small hillock at Vasanthapura belies ten years of working towards a better India. The drive up the hill, paved with stones that make for a rough road, ends at a nondescript glass door. In the backdrop stands a formidable 270 ton silo, a silent testament to the work at hand, a clue to what lies inside the structure.

'Cchhiva prachaad', he said when asked what his name was. The young 5-year-old, who almost crept out of being a toddler, rushed towards his head-mistress who was distributing prizes to winners of the drawing competition. It was more than amusement for these kids in the Bhovipalya Government Primary school.
