Let’s build a nourished India with online fundraising

As we celebrate World Population Day on July 11, how about thinking something different from just sharing insightful articles on social media pages. Can we channelise our resources, through online fundraising, for a nourished India. As of July 2017, India stands at 1.34 billion people. More than 50 per cent of this population is below the age of 25, including children. This demographic is our future but are they nourished and healthy enough?

A non-profit organisation Akshaya Patra is striving to secure the future of India’s children by fighting hunger and sourcing resources through donations and non-profit fundraising ideas. The organisation serves wholesome lunch to school children in several states in India ensuring that no child in India misses school due to hunger.

In your online fundraising campaign, you can inform the community about how World Population Day was started by the governing council of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) that works towards the reproductive health of the community especially women and the youth. It’s only apt that every one of us in India contribute towards making it a more nourished and a healthier country. Millions of children in India are either under nourished or hungry and we cannot have a healthy nation without feeding wholesome meal to children. We can donate to charities such as Akshaya Patra, or simply engage in online fundraising towards the cause of food and education.

Through online fundraising campaigns, we can raise awareness about how healthy children are better focuses towards their dreams and goals. When their basic need of nourishment is met, they are able to pursue professions such as medical, engineering, education, information technology or any other field of their choice and contribute positively towards nation’s development. Non-profit fundraising ideas don’t need a special talent, but only a strong will towards the cause.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation has been engaged in the cause of nourishment of children since the year 2000. As population grows, the organisation strives to reach all of them with their School-lunch Programme. Help the foundation by donating to charity today.

3 Ways Every Student Can Stay Organised!

The school year is back with the same excitement and anticipation. Aren’t you looking forward to it? But how would you spend this school year differently?

Education-for-children

We at Akshaya Patra, one of the children’s charities engaged in feeding the hungry, work for children who are excited to come back to school every year. We have some ideas for you to stay organised this year.

Write down your timetable and carry it with you

Writing down your class timetable twice can save you from a lot of hassles like late arrival or missing a class. Write down your timetable at the back of a classwork notebook and always carry it in your class. Keep one timetable always pasted on the wall of your house for reminders.

Keep your bag organised

How many times have you been rebuked in class simply because you forgot to carry your homework copy? That happens when you fail to organise your schoolbag. Now that you have already written down your timetable, make sure you keep your bag organised according to it.

Carry your daily needs

Apart from books, what do you need in your bag? Is it a handkerchief, a water bottle, a box containing pencils and pens? Make sure you carry all your daily needs in your bag. Nobody likes boys and girls who always borrow things like pencils or erasers from other students. This habit will make you self-sufficient and also help you value your belongings.

Children, now that you are back to school, make the new academic year’s resolution to always keep your things safe. There are children who cannot afford these things and often, children’s charities all over India have to work hard to get these children some basic school needs. Do you know that many organisations work to help such children?

Akshaya Patra is on a mission of feeding the hungry through its school lunch programme. If you know anyone who can contribute in this cause, do encourage them to sponsor a child, so they can help that child get both food and education. Spread the good news today.
