Akshaya Patra Annual Report 2014-15

Annual report 2015 of The Akshaya Patra Foundation, a leading NGO dedicated to underprivileged children, is out. The Annual Report 2014-15 titled ‘Giving Every Dream A Chance’ mainly focuses on the theme, ‘The Making of a Dream,’ and all the main procedures which is undertaken by the organisation to  help children get closer to their dreams.

The Akshaya Patra Annual Report, in a way is an effort to highlight the role of a nutritious meal on children. It also provides a solid evidence to show that how the opportunity to eat healthy along with a structured guidance or education helps children follow their dreams.

In an effort to prove this, three young beneficiaries of Akshaya Patra were enrolled into a mentorship programme and were trained according to their field of interest. The whole session including the progress was documented. We can see that the initiative was a great success.

One of the most interesting parts of Annual Report of the NGO is its design and presentation. The cover page of the annual report showing the image of a school boy gazing into the starlit sky is powerful and conveys the message clearly.


The NGO Annual Report is presented under 8 topics namely:

  • Introduction
  • At the Heart of the Dream
  • What Drives the Dream
  • 2014-15 in a Wrap
  • The Dream Progresses
  • Management Message
  • Dream Stories
  • Previous Annual Reports


The best part of the Annual Report is Dream Stories, where the organisation tells stories of three 14-year-old young stars- Shivu, who wants to become an astronomer, Manjula who is keen on following her dreams to become an actress and Shekar, who wants to become a chef.

Apart from these, the report also gives an insight into the organisation’s progress, mainly its Annual Financial Report, awards and recognitions received by it during the previous year.
