Nine years back on this very day, July 5th 2012, we started the breakfast programme for 50 school children in a remote village by name Doddabelle (off mysore road), Kengeri – South Bangalore.
Today, Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust (the trust was officially formed in 2015) with the support from 500 volunteers has taken up this very unique program of providing FREE morning nutrition to over 500,000 school going children across 6000+ govt schools in 17 States and 3 Union Territories.
It inspires and motivates us a lot when we see such selfless volunteers participate daily in the program and create a People’s movement (Jan Andolan). Going to the village by 6.30am in the morning and serving hot and fresh breakfast for these children has become a daily habit for many of our supporting volunteers.
Even during the current pandemic times, our volunteers continue to be in touch with the beneficiary children supporting their parents by providing needy ration supplies, education and healthcare support.
1. One Month Dry Ration supplies have been provided 125,000 beneficiary families, spread over the last 18 months
