THE RIGHT TO FOOD.
THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION.
THE RIGHT TO A FUTURE.

Akshaya Patra is now feeding more than 2.1 million hungry schoolchildren every day, through life-changing programmes in both India and the UK.

Our vision is that no child should be deprived of education because of poverty and hunger.

We are building a movement of people who – working together with compassion, generosity and determination – are ensuring that a growing number of disadvantaged children can eat well, make the most of their education, and realise their full potential.
