Role of an NGO in India


It is a well-known and globally accepted fact that the role of an NGO is inevitable. Be it a developed nation, developing or under-developed nation, NGO has a vital role to play in the growth and sustenance of every nation. Especially, Indian child NGOs play a very significant role. This is so because the core role of an Indian child NGO revolves around the health, education, and rights of the children especially of the backward section of the society. The Indian child NGOs are seen as a ray of hope in bringing the underprivileged section of the society at par with the privileged section.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is one such Indian child NGO working towards eradicating classroom hunger and illiteracy by the medium of providing mid-day meals to the children of Government schools. It has responsibly taken the role of an NGO to cut through all barriers to make the benefits of the Mid-Day Meal Scheme available even at the grass root level. This Indian child NGO has been in the service of children since June 2000. Though it began with feeding just 1,500 children in a handful of 5 Government schools in Bangalore, it has today increased its reach to 1.39 million children from more than 10,600 Government schools across 10 states of India.

The Central Government of India and various State Governments has been responsive to the role of an NGO in expanding the mid-day meal programme and thus welcomes more NGO participation and also provides subsidies and grants to run the programme. Apart from Government support, online donation for NGO also plays a constructive role in filling the deficit amount that the NGOs face in managing the programme. As internet has become the all in one platform for information seekers, the mode of online donation for NGO is fast gaining popularity. Akshaya Patra too provides its supporters and donors the ease of contributing online donation for NGO.

Through Akshaya Patra you can feed one child for one year at just Rs. 750. When you partner with this Indian child NGO, you get the opportunity to change the lives of millions of young hearts who go through difficult times every day, yet are determined to come to school. The beneficiaries of this Indian child NGO have the zeal to achieve big despite all odds. By playing the pivotal role of an NGO, Akshaya Patra aims to feed 5 million children by 2020 and steadily move towards achieving its vision of ‘No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.’

Let us allow the children to be children. Let us responsibly support and take care of their budding hopes and aspirations. Feed a child and the join the mission!
