Making Small Donations Towards NGOs make Bigger Impacts
A group of children fought with stray dogs over scraps of food. His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, after seeing this disheartening scene ensured that no child within a radius of ten miles from the centre should go hungry. This inspiring thought sowed the seeds of the vision: “No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger” for The Akshaya Patra Foundation. It started feeding 1,500 children in Bengaluru in the year 2000. The Foundation implements the Central Government’s Mid-Day Meal Programme and feeds a whopping 1.8 million children on a daily basis as on today.
Akshaya Patra is an NGO that accepts online donations to make a huge impact on the beneficiary children. Every single time you make a donation to this NGO in India, you are giving reasons for children to come to school. By being a part of this organisation, you take care of children’s health and well-being.
“Giving is not just about making a donation.
It is about making a difference.” — Kathy Calvin
