There are various ways in which we can contribute towards society’s progress. It’s relatively easier to support a cause pertaining to the upliftment of underprivileged children. Every child loves an entertaining event like an art and craft workshop or a magic show. Each of us can make a difference to the lives of these children in various ways. Either you can initiate and organise an event at a Government school where Akshaya Patra provides meals or you can be part of an event that is organised by the organisation. It’s your choice! The Akshaya Patra Foundation has organised numerous events that have assisted in fundraising to support our cause.
