Akshaya Patra

  • 27% of the world’s malnourished children live in India – more than anywhere else.
  • India has the largest number of child labourers in the world at 17%.
  • Child malnutrition impacts educational attainment and perpetuates the cycle of poverty.
  • Akshaya Patra Foundation strives to tackle the issues of classroom hunger and educational access in India. By providing free freshly cooked, nourishing school lunches through our Food For Education Programme in government and government aided schools, we aim to fight malnutrition and increase the enrolment of children in schools across India.

  • 3 young girls enjoy a hot, nourishing meal from the school already adopted in India by Dr Ajay Mehta.
