Wish you a very Happy Diwali

May the festival of lights brighten up your life with love, joy & prosperity.

Diwali, the festival of lights is celebrated across India with much joy and vigour. It symbolises victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. Diwali is one of the most awaited festivals and people celebrate it by lighting diyas, decorating houses and offices, offering prayers, distributing gifts and sweets, organising get-togethers, and fireworks. 


Celebrate Diwali with Akshaya Patra

This Diwali, add the element of kindness to your celebration. Share a part of your festive light and joy with children by gifting them the much-needed school meals. Just like you, these children have dreams and the determination to achieve big in life. What they need is an opportunity to attend school! The provision of school meals is a big intervention in supporting education of children hailing from challenging socio-economic backgrounds.  


During Diwali, we give so many gifts to our near and dear ones. This time why not take one step extra and gift school meals to children who needs it the most. Your contribution for school meals will:


  • Give children the opportunity to attend school every day
  • Boost their health with adequate nourishment
  • Support education and continuity of schooling
  • Improve performance in academic & co-curricular activities
  • Prepare them to be resourceful individuals in the near future
