India is fast developing it has not still achieved the goal of food for all and it requires a legendary ‘Akshayapathram “to feed all the hungry in India
Exactly an Akshaya Patra was what Madhu Pandit Das, a noble soul, had dreamed when he saw a pathetic scene of hungry street children fighting with dogs for abandoned food. He started a foundation aptly named ‘AKSHAYAPATRA’ to feed school children at noon time. It was begun with limited resources and now it has spread to eighteen locations in
giving mid-day meal for about 1.6 million hungry children India
The hunger has impact on education of the child. An hungry child eventually abandon his school and go after work and food. As such the mid-day meal for the school children serves dual role of feeding the child and compelling him to come to school.
About 30 Dollars or its equivalent of any currency would require to feed a hungry child thru his school year. Since there is 50% Government subsidy, two children can be given food with that amount.
I fervently wish that readers of this post would visit site AKSHAYAPATRA.and participate in this noble venture of feeding the child.
