Institution & Organization
In a recent philanthropic development, A.T.E. Chandra Foundation provided financial support to The Akshaya Patra Foundation to build a centralised kitchen in Jorhat, Assam.
Akshaya Patra and the Infosys Foundation's journey together began several years ago. During this time the Infosys Foundation has been a staunch supporter of Akshaya Patra’s work to end classroom hunger in India. Today N.R. Narayana Murthy, Founder of Infosys Limited, is on the Advisory Board of Akshaya Patra’s US chapter, while his wife Sudha Murty, Chairperson of the Infosys Foundation actively facilitates the organisation’s mid-day meal programme. By generously lending its voice to the programme, and providing constant expertise and financial support, the Infosys Foundation has been a driving force in taking Akshaya Patra’s mid-day meal programme to new heights. The Infosys Foundation, launched in 1996, operates as a not-for-profit organisation that works to create opportunity and an equitable society. The Foundation currently supports programmes across education, healthcare, rural development, arts and culture and destitute care. Find latest updates from Infosys Foundation on

ONE WORLD FOUNDATION
We are very happy to present our partnership with the One World Foundation (OWF), Bulgaria. OWF has funded a year-round programme for mid-day meals for 620 school children in a school (ZPHS Nadupuru) in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. OWF was founded by Dr Ruja Ignatova to support children’s right to education and self-improvement, and to give them further opportunities to develop. Their mission is to empower children to reach their potential through education and long-term support. Like us, they believe that children and youth must have equal access to quality education. OWF works to provide vulnerable children with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, talents and skills.
