Bangalore, India – October 1, 2019 – A team of volunteers from Ness Digital Engineering, a global provider of digital transformation and custom software engineering services, visited Akshaya Patra’s kitchen in Bangalore, a foundation that serves mid-day meals to 1.8 million school children across India. Ness has signed up as a sponsor to support mid-day meals throughout the year for 1,800 children studying in the government schools located in Bangalore.
To support intake of nutritious meals and promote education, Ness volunteers closely worked with the kitchen staff during the visit to assist them in meal preparation and distribution activities. Later, the Ness volunteers visited the local schools in Bangalore and served the prepared food to the school children.
“The mid-day meal program is not just about providing food; rather, it aims at providing opportunities for government school children to get a good education and thereby realize their true potential,” says Vinay Rajadhyaksha, President & Chief Operating Officer, Ness Digital Engineering.
Sundeep Talwar, CMO, Akshaya Patra said, “Our goal is that no child is deprived of education because of hunger. We appreciate Ness’s emphasis on serving the community and supporting us in our mission.”
“It feels nice to be part of an organization that is socially conscious. It is quite fulfilling to know that so many children are getting nutritious and hygienic mid-day meals and a wonderful formal education,” says Sangeeta Bora, a Ness volunteer.
Another volunteer from Bangalore, Shipra Bharati said, “By sponsoring mid-day meals from the Akshaya Patra Foundation, you make a two-fold contribution: you feed millions of children and support them for a promising future. I feel Ness’s little effort can help make a huge difference in the life of children.”
