A day to celebrate children, the childhood, and the innocence;
An occasion to rejoice the million smiles and laughter, and
A time to cheer the billion dreams and aspirations…
Ask anyone and they will say, ‘the future of the world lies in the hands of children’. Children are the assets of every nation. Prosperity and hope of any society or nation is directly related to the upbringing of its children. If we provide the children of today with wholesome food, education, and health, then we are in to reap a prosperous and bright future.
On the contrary, if children are malnourished and illiterate, the future too will have the same or may be worse, in store for us. When children are young, appreciate their innocence; when they are teenagers, channelize their energy; when they become young adults, help them optimize their goals. This has the potential to result in a future of responsible, sensitive and conscious adults.
At Akshaya Patra, we are in a constant thrive to create many happy tomorrows, so that Children’s Day celebration is not just restricted to one day; rather it becomes the substance of every day. We want to make the celebration something more than just balloons and sweets. We want to gift them a happy and prosperous future. We want to help them have a life full of happiness. We want to help them in realizing their dreams and aspirations. We want to gift the children, the goodness of food thereby enabling them to get educated.
Having received the credit of world’s largest NGO run mid day meal programme, Akshaya Patra is currently feeding 1.3 million children everyday and aims to feed 5 million children by 2020. This Children’s Day we take the opportunity to reiterate, and to reaffirm our vision of “No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger”, in a more profound manner. Join us to offer ‘unlimited food for education’. Your contribution of Rs. 675 can feed one child for an entire year. Be a part of The Akshaya Patra Foundation and become instrumental in creating a hunger free, educated and blissful tomorrow.
