THEY MADE CHILDREN A PART OF THEIR LIVES
I was totally satisfied, both with the method of disbursement and the target population. Instead of spending money on yearly rituals of my parents’ Death Anniversary, I donate the amount to Akshaya Patra. Money spent on God’s children should please the God anyway

About 10 years ago, when I was assisting a large municipality on the Mid-Day Meal Scheme, I evaluated Akshaya Patra and its delivery capabilities. I was impressed with its intentions, team and operations, and started donating. From supporting a few students initially, to supporting many more now, I intend to keep increasing my contribution with every successive year.

I started my journey in contributing to Akshaya Patra from 2007 as I had read about their activities, especially feeding school children in India, which improves their quality of life and encourages them to get educated. With the grace of the Almighty, I wish to support Akshaya Patra for as long as I can, through donations or in person, when I find time.
