The Hans Foundation supports Akshaya Patra
In a notable manner, The Hans Foundation has entered into a strategic partnership with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to build 2 kitchens; one each at Ahmedabad (Gujarat) and Haridwar (Uttarakhand). Each of these kitchens will have a cooking capacity for 1 lakh children. These kitchens will be based on latest technology and will positively impact the lives of children. The construction work is currently on at both locations and we will have the kitchens operational by mid next year. The Hans Foundation is a charitable trust that funds registered NGO’s in India. The Foundation supports organizations whose focus area falls in any one of the three areas - disability, education and healthcare.
The Hans Foundation is supporting around 1000 differently-abled children in 9 special schools at Bangalore and Bellary, with freshly cooked, hot nutritious meals. The Hans Foundation has also donated a meal distribution vehicle to The Akshaya Patra Foundation. The custom-designed vehicle donated will be used to distribute mid-day meals to children in schools across Bellary.
Akshaya Patra sincerely acknowledges and is grateful for the valuable support by The Hans Foundation.
