Akshaya Patra Serving Health and Well-Being in Schools

The major drawback in India is that children from low-income families are not entitled to proper education for lack of food. The children tend to remain hungry as their parents cannot afford them a meal. For them, a square meal is more important than acquiring education. So they accompany parents to work places. As a result, attendance has dropped down and drop-outs have increased.  It is estimated that more than 50% of Indian children drop out of the schools at primary level.  Unfortunately, India shares 34% percent of the world’s illiterate population.

Without education a child can never progress. Understanding the link between education and nutrition, Akshaya Patra serves unlimited food for education keeping their growth requirements in mind. The meals are delivered with proper nutrition; quality, prescribed calories and safety. Adequate supply of micro nutrients as iron, folic acid, zinc, fibre, essential fatty acids, calcium, carbohydrates, protein vitamin A are supplemented through the mid-day meals. During lunch servings; roti, rice, rice khichadi, curd rice, vegetable pulao, mixed vegetable curry, sambar, dhal, rasam etc. are served. The sambar and curries contain lots of vegetables which have essential nutrients that are required for the adequate growth of children. The rice and wheat served meets adequate standards as prescribed by The Government of India.  Every meal served is warm, fresh, nutritious and ready to eat. So hunger, which is an obstacle to children’s health, education and survival are tackled by the nutritious mid-day meals.

Come and Join, we can change the world on this Hunger Day – Akshaya Patra

Why hunger? This is indeed a very deplorable situation which does need an “immediate” attention, even though it is not an illustrious crisis.  Notably, most of the deaths from hunger which are happening all over the world are not because of any natural calamities! Although deaths caused by hunger at the time of natural calamities do exist; it takes only a 10% of total death by hunger’s share. The rest 90% of death is a grand courtesy of chronic hunger! It is drastically spreading to all corners of the world and also rooting strongly in the parts like Africa, Latin America and South Asia.

This entrenched hunger problem is not only due to food scarcity, but also due to deficiency in many aspects. Many people fail to earn income for their daily share of bread because of reasons like: lack of skills and education. Again, the underprivileged sadly have to surrender to chronic hunger to health due to the absence of hospitals, medicines, funds and knowledge about it. These aspects strengthen chronic hunger, therefore, the underprivileged are always in search for a helping hand to raise their voice. Thus “World Hunger Day” was coined to create an awareness of these kinds of situations.

Let us join hands with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to eradicate hunger. Let us support us on this noble cause to eventuate a “Hunger Free World”.  Sponsor Food for Children for this World hunger day 2012.
