Akshaya Patra on NDTV Profit
During a talk show on NDTV Profit, Infosys Founder Mr. Narayan Murthy, mentions The Akshaya Patra Foundation as a perfect example of Public Private Partnership.
He further points out how the Foundation involves the respective state governments, individuals and corporate donors to feed 1.3 million children everyday across 8 states and 18 locations of India. He says one doesn’t need to be a ‘sanyasi’ and go to Himalayas to do good to the society.
We can contribute to the society even while having fun. He further tells the audience about how efficiently Akshaya Patra has used technology and engineering skills of people to fight hunger and eradicate poverty.
