Celebrating 15 Years
We’ve completed 15 years of this enriching journey to eliminate classroom hunger in India!Started in the year 2000 feeding just 1,500 children across 5 schools in India, today Akshaya Patra has grown to feed nearly 15 lakh children a day across 24 locations in 15 years. This would not have been possible without the efforts of great leaders and thinkers who have dedicated their time and resources to make this organisation’s cause a success, the generosity and empathy of our kind contributors and volunteers, and the dedication of the entire Akshaya Patra team.
Inspired by the teachings of a great visionary Srila Prabhupada, Akshaya Patra’s vision is ‘No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger’ and the mission is to feed 5 million children by 2020. Through a synthesis of dedication, technology, good management practices and sheer determination, we are well on our way towards achieving that dream. On this occasion of Akshaya Patra’s 15 year Anniversary on 11 November, 2015, we take a look at the distance the Foundation has travelled, and the way it has yet to go. We use this opportunity to share some of our triumphs and accolades, connect with you our well-wishers and above all, express our gratitude for all that you’ve helped and continue to help us achieve.
Thank you for being a part of our journey!
