Last year was a tumultuous one, filled with uncertainty and fear.  As COVID variants ravaged the world over, studies by the UN and Brookings showed that low-income countries were more severely impacted than developed nations.

  1. Developing countries accounted for half of the world’s COVID mortalities
  2. The world’s poorest and most vulnerable were pushed towards greater food insecurity 
  3. Children in rural, low-income households were gravely affected by learning disruptions.  
  4. Throughout 2020 and 2021, our staff worked tirelessly to provide emergency food relief and education incentives for children to continue learning.

With news of the pandemic waning, the team at Akshaya Patra couldn’t be happier to bid adieu to 2021 and welcome 2022 with open arms.  Our resolution for 2022 is to restart our midday meal program to incentivize education by providing 1.8 million underprivileged children nutritious meals, every school day, all across India.  Our 800+ trucks will deliver these meals to 19,000+ schools, 6 days a week, from 60 ISO-standard kitchens.

So what are your new year’s resolutions?  Do you want to get fit?  Eat healthier?  Do you find yourself setting goals and halfway through January, giving up?  Well, we have the perfect solution.  Tie your new year’s resolutions to a charitable cause and increase your chances of reaching your goals.  

So, this year, make giving a part of your resolutions, have fun and reach your goals while doing it!
