Empower children with health and opportunities while saving 50% tax with Akshaya Patra
Akshaya Patra is a 23-year-old NGO committed to nourishing the bodies and minds of children from humble backgrounds in government schools. Presently, our 67 kitchens feed over 2 million children in 15 states and 2 union territories.
Through our online platform, we offer an easy opportunity for change-seekers to become changemakers. By contributing on our website, one can become a part of the solution to one of the most pressing challenges today – CLASSROOM HUNGER.
According to WHO, in 2022, 148.1 million children under 5 years of age were too short for their age (stunting), 45 million were too thin for their height (wasting) and 37 million were too heavy for their height (overweight).
Addressing classroom hunger through school feeding programmes will not only address child malnourishment but also incentivise them to stay in school, thus improving the literacy rate among the local communities.
In India, we at Akshaya Patra support the government in implementing the PM POSHAN Abhiyaan by providing fresh and nutritious mid-day meals in over 20,000 government schools.
Every donation above ₹500 to Akshaya Patra is eligible for a 50% tax exemption and the donor will get a tax certificate as proof of contribution.
