Description:

Hello, 

This is my first Sevathon and I am promoting Akshaya Patra, an NGO that addresses 2 of India's biggest challenges for children - hunger/malnutrition and access to education. Child malnutrition in India is a massive problem - there are more malnourished children in India than there are in Sub-Saharan Africa. 1 in every 3 malnourished children in the world are from India, and about 50% of all childhood deaths are accounted towards malnutrition. Education is another huge problem in India, currently less than 50% of all children between 6 and 14 are enrolled in school. Additonally, almost 50% drop out before completing elementary school.

Akshaya Patra tackles both these problems head on with their daily mid-day meal program. They currently provide freshly prepared nutritious meals to over 1.3 million underprivileged children, daily in over 9000 schools in India.  For many children this is their only complete meal for the day, gives them an incentive to come & stay in school, while providing them with the necessary nutrients they need to grow & focus on learning.

I am running the Sevathon this year to promote awareness of these issues & to support the incredible work that Akshaya Patra does. There are millions of children in India that need your help, and thanks to fantastic work by Akshaya Patra, it costs only $15 to feed a child for a year.

Thanks to the overwhelming support I have gotten from everyone, I am extending my target to reach 200 children (200 x 15 = $3000). Please help me support these children in any way possible - they need your help!
