I met a person over lunch on Saturday. He works miracles. He is a part of a movement called akshayapatra. They do have a website and is http://www.akshayapatra.org.
The amazing things this organisation does is actually very simple – they feed upwards of 8.5 million children EVERYDAY. Come to think of this. 8.5 million children every day, day on day.
Why do they do this?
To get them to school, so that they can get educated. And he told us that the children get plates from home for eating. HOWEVER, there are kids who cannot afford to bring plates. My mouth was salty and eyes moist, when I heard this. Even as i type this, my hands are shivering. Come to think of kids whose parents do not have money to buy plates on which their kids can eat.
In a country where i meet friends who regularly put in IPO applications for millions of dollars (with or without leverage), who regularly get million rupee bonuses i was really moved.
My request to all who are reading this message please go out there and sponsor one kid for a year. It costs 1200 – may not be a big amount for you, but it could put a kid in school, lets open our purses.
