A few words from a volunteer

Posted: 15 May 2012 09:44 PM PDT

There were days when poor students would go to Teachers house to have "Varanna" in which the students would be fed once in a week. On a rotation, the student would go to different teacher's house and other rich people in the locality. Now, many of them have grown and have a respectable position in the society. This clearly shows the relationship between the food and the education. The best a society can offer a child is the education; because once the child is educated they become a responsible citizen of this country. To provide a good education, the child should not be hungry.

Akshaya Patra a change agent

Six out of 10 children are undernourished in India. Malnutrition accounts for 50% of the child death in this country'. A report on the state of food insecurity in rural India, states that more than 1.5 million children are vulnerable to malnutrition because of the raise in global food prices. Chronic undernutrition in childhood is linked to slower cognitive development and serious health impairments later in life and reduce the quality of life and also the economic productivity of people.(Scrimchaw 1996).

Children’s Life Skills

Posted: 15 May 2012 09:37 PM PDT

"…the pressure has started to get to me and I cannot take it any longer…I hope they will understand," says a 17 year old boy's suicide note1. Teenagers today are under so much pressure to perform well in their exams that they take the most extreme and final step of ending their own lives. According to the latest figures available, in 2006 alone 16 students a day killed themselves due to exam stress in India.2 Yet there are no absolutely clear and distinct signs that warn parents of their child's suffering.

Dial 1800-425-8622 for more information

When did you last give to charity? More importantly, do you know what happened to the money you sent? And do you know who you can speak to in order to find this out? It's sad but true, that not all charitable organizations give you accountability of your money and donations. Therefore a donor who is convinced about a cause willingly sends in money to support the charity but loses faith when they are not responded to.
