What Akshaya Patra says about Chase community charity program and how it is helpful in leading their service ahead?
What is cooler than half a million dollars – changing millions of lives. Hunger is a problem that over 50 million children are battling silently in India. It keeps these children out of school and forces them to take menial jobs to bring home food for their families. Hunger also impedes their ability to learn. Akshaya Patra leverages innovative technology to deliver freshly and hygienically prepared school lunches at a cost of 6 cents a meal to 1.3 million children DAILY. These meals, catered for local appetite, serve as an incentive for children to attend school and are a strategic intervention in education aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty.
The program has resulted in increased enrollment and retention; improved performance and health. $500,000 will feed 43,478 children daily for an entire school year. Keep these children in school. Transform a whole generation. Address hunger. Prevent child labor. Create skilled workforce. Be the catalyst of hope. VOTE FOR AKSHAYA PATRA
