Greetings from Akshaya Patra!
As the weather begins to turn cold here in Boston our hearts have been warmed by the outpouring of support over the last several months for the construction of our new kitchen in Nathdwara. I am overjoyed to share the good news that the kitchen was fully funded and is now complete! It will be inaugurated on Childrens Day in India, November 14th. The Nathdwara kitchen has the capacity to feed 50,000 children DAILY; giving them an incentive to come to school, stay in school, and provide them with the nutrients they need to focus on learning. We could not have accomplished this project without each one of you and we are incredibly grateful for your support.
Although providing fresh nutritious meals to an additional 50,000 school children is a tremendous step forward, we are still a far way off from reaching our goal of feeding 5 million children by 2020. We will continue to count on the support of each of you and hope that you will continue to share the work of Akshaya Patra with your friends and family.
Thank you for all that you do.
The Akshaya Patra Team
