Celebrate a Noiseless Diwali with Akshaya Patra!

Every year, Diwali arrives with the noise of fireworks and ends with a lot of air pollution. So what can be done to lessen the impairment? We believe it is the little lamps that we light in our homes that display the authentic essence of Diwali. This festive season, take an oath to make this festival noise-free and more meaningful!

Diwali, also known as Deepawali, is celebrated with grandeur across the length and breadth of India. The festival of lights is so popular that the day is an official holiday in many places across the globe, including Malaysia, Singapore, and Sri Lanka. While the night sky is lit up with colourful sparkles, will you pledge to make this festive season more meaningful?


Akshaya Patra, a children’s NGO in India, urges you to opt for a noise-free Diwali by choosing a box of sweets over fireworks, or by donating to children’s charity fund instead of wasting on firecrackers. Through our Mid-Day Meal Programme, we provide nutritious meals to over 1.6 million school children on every school day. This Diwali, you can pledge to support these children by lighting the lamp in your heart. With a small contribution, you can help children continue their education!

Sponsor a child and win tax exemptions!

If you are planning to do some charity this Diwali, Akshaya Patra could be your answer! Every donation of Rs 500 or above to Akshaya Patra is eligible for 100% tax exemption under section 35 AC or 50% tax exemption under Section 80 G of the Indian Income Tax.

This year, let’s embrace the spirit of Diwali with a spark! Choose whether you want to celebrate with box of fireworks or with a box of sweets. Be a part of the change and support Akshaya Patra’s food for education initiative today.
