An initiative between Priceburp.com & The Akshaya Patra Foundation
Ronald Reagan has very rightly said, “We cant help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”
Taking cue from this solicitous thought, the team of PriceBurp.com decided to do their bit towards addressing one of the most troublesome issues that plagues our society today, i.e. hunger and malnutrition among underprivileged children. As a result, we decided to tie-up with one of India’s most distinguished non-profit organizations, Akshaya Patra, which works towards providing mid-day meals to children who are eager to learn and go to school, but cannot afford a decent, healthy meal everyday. And the best bit about this benevolent plan is that, everyone can contribute towards this cause!
All you will have to do is, redeem PriceBurp coupons while you shop online and we’ll contribute to Akshaya Patra. In other words, every qualifying purchase that is made through PriceBurp, will give us a referral commission from our affiliated stores. This in turn will enable us to donate to the NGO, which will provide healthy, cooked food to poor children studying in various Government schools across the country. All of this, without charging you any extra money!
In simple terms, you can now save money while shopping online, and still contribute to the social cause of curbing the hunger related issues in our country. To know more about Akshaya Patra, read on.
Headquartered in Bangalore, this secular NGO, in partnership with the Government of India, as well as certain State Governments, works to address and resolve the serious issues of hunger and malnutrition in the country. The Akshaya Patra Foundation, which was initiated in the year 2000, implements the World’s largest NGO managed mid-day meal programme through which, they feed children from 10,661 schools across 10 states in India on a daily basis.
The organization uses the best of modern technology in the form of state-of-the-art kitchens, for preparing safe and good-quality food for children. As of now, Akshaya Patra has introduced such kitchens in around 23 locations across 10 states in India, with the help of the Government, well wishers and beneficent donors. What started as a small yet promising initiative which served 1500 children across 5 Government schools initially, is now the World’s largest mid-day meal programme, providing cooked, nutritious food to over 1.4 million children on all working school days. The Foundation’s work has created a very wide ranging social impact among the children of poor and marginalized communities who go to government schools in India.
