Our Governance Philosophy is based on a set of laws, rules and regulations and good practices that enables the organisation to perform efficiently and ethically and create value for all its stakeholders.
The organisation is committed to the belief that the adoption of the best governance practices will take us a long way ahead.
The roots of our value system and governance practices reflect the culture of the trusteeship. The core philosophy rests on 4 basic tenets:
Board accountability to the organisation and stakeholders
Equitable treatment to all stakeholders
Strategic guidance and effective monitoring by the Board
Transparency and timely disclosure
Following the philosophy and adoption of the best governance practices, Akshaya Patra continuously strives for excellence.
A successful Public – Private Partnership
The Akshaya Patra Foundation works in partnership with the Central Government and various State Governments in conducting its programme. To help us run the Mid-Day Meal Scheme successfully, the governments support us with grain and cash subsidies. We receive generous support from corporate houses and individual donors as well.
The success of our initiative can be attributed to several factors, including the efforts of all those people who work behind the scenes … the Passioneers as we like to call them. Watch their story here
