CNBC-AWAAZ and The Akshaya Patra Foundation have come together to build a nourished India. With the campaign ‘Bhookh Se Azaadi’, CNBC-AWAAZ aims to boost the mid-day meal scheme introduced by the Government of India. As part of the scheme, the Government provides school lunch to the children studying in Government and Government-aided school. The meal is known to increase the number of school enrolments and daily school attendance. It has been observed that the concentration level among the children has gone up and their academic performance has also improved. Akshaya Patra, while partnering with the Government, has been on the forefront ensuring that the cooked food, which is hygienic and nutritious, reaches every child. This helps the children focus on studies and dream of a bright future.
