The Governance Philosophy at Akshaya Patra refers to a set of laws, regulations and good practices that enable an organisation to perform efficiently and ethically and create value for all its stakeholders.
At the Akshaya Patra Foundation, we are committed to the belief that the adoption of the best governance practices will take us a long way. It’s also in us to not just aspire to be a truly world-class not-for-profit organisation, but also adhere to a governance model that’s world-class.
Our governance practices reflect the culture of the trusteeship that is deeply ingrained in our value system. The core philosophy rests on 4 basic tenets:
- Board accountability to the Foundation and stakeholders
- Equitable treatment to all stakeholders
- Strategic guidance and effective monitoring by the Board
- Transparency and timely disclosure
In line with this philosophy, The Akshaya Patra Foundation continuously strives for excellence through adoption of best governance practices.
A successful Public – Private Partnership
The programme is conducted in partnership with the Central Government and various State Governments. They support us by providing grain and cash subsidies to successfully run the Mid-Day Meal Scheme. In addition, corporate houses and individual donors also extend their generous support.
