Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellows Programme
The Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellows Programme matches emerging leaders with effective international organisations that address the root causes of hunger around the world.
In 2007, Akshaya Patra was chosen as a recipient organisation for the programme. Ms Nicole Woo, Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellow, who came to India to establish a comprehensive development and evaluation framework for Akshaya Patra said “From what I've observed in just my first few days here, Akshaya Patra's operations are truly impressive. Akshaya Patra's mid-day meal programme could become a model for other developing nations around the world."
