Press Release Summary: "AkshayaPatra.org is promoting and encouraging the education
of underprivileged children because they believe that education can unlock the
vicious and self-perpetuating cycle of hunger and poverty"

Press Release Body: The AkshayaPatra Foundation (TAPF) was founded in 2000, to
address the dual challenges of hunger and education in India. The organization
provided nutrition-rich midday meals to extremely underprivileged children in India
with the aim of increasing school enrollment, reducing drop-out rates, and improving
academic performance.

The AkshayaPatra program had a simple vision: "No child in India should be deprived
of education because of hunger." Since India is having enormous population, this
vision was difficult to realize. So, in order to fulfill this vision it is feeding
1,500 students in five schools in Bangalore. It was one of the first organizations
in the region to provide freshly cooked, hot and nutritious, balanced meals, and
within six months of starting the program, it had requests from 3,000 schools.

AkshayaPatra is funded through a combination of government subsidies and private
donations. Donation is the fastest and easiest way in which you could help these
underprivileged children.

Millions of hopeful children are waiting for you, even a small contribution can make
a big difference.

There are several ways to donate to AkshayaPatra to provide a good standard of
education so that the children will have better opportunities in life.
