I express my heartfelt thanks to Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust, Muddenahalli, for satisfying the hunger of our school students by providing nutritious health drink in the morning at school. As a result of this, the children come to school regularly. Our school staff and children owe a lot to Sadguru Madhusudan Sai. Sadguru Madhusudan Sai, the Divine equivalent, has identified the problem of hunger in underprivileged children. He has a very big heart to feed all the children of government schools in the state, undertaking a lot of expense and effort. May His blessings be upon our children.

Rendering service to poverty-stricken school-going children is a boon to me. I accompanied Sri Boinpally Vinod Kumar – Vice Chairman Planning Board of Telangana, to the discussions with Sadguru Madhusudan Sai for Annapoorna Trust activities to happen in every nook and corner of Telangana. Fully confident of improved health standards of the children in the survey to be conducted by the NITI AAYOG (National Institute for Transforming India) next year, Sadguru gave word that He would be delighted to see happiness in the faces of children by then.
What started in Sircilla with just one hundred students, this programme has extended to 35,000 students in Karimnagar, 30,000 in Peddapally, and 15,000 in Jagtial, due to the initiatives taken by Sri Vinod Kumar. There has been a remarkable improvement in haemoglobin levels among the students. To address the ’hidden hunger’ in children, the requirement for micronutrients is met by providing the SaiSure Ragi variant in government schools. This programme is held in high esteem in the eyes of the government. Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust’s Morning Nutrition programme will undoubtedly bring about a remarkable change in nurturing the hapless, downtrodden hunger-stricken kids.
I pray to Sadguru Madhusudan Sai to extend this philanthropic service to all the government schools in Telangana in a phased manner. Service to man is service to God.

Note: Sri Kannam Ramesh started working to introduce the Annapoorna Morning Nutrition programme in 2017 with just one school with 100 children in Sircilla district. Today, they are serving 1 lakh children in 4 districts with their teamwork.
Annapoorna Trust, with the assistance of school headmasters, is supplying stocks of SaiSure Ragi from a distance of nearly 1000 kilometres far from here, from Chikkaballapur. Upon learning about the Nutrition programme and assessing the state of the schools, the district collector responded positively for execution and expressed appreciation for the plan. The collector also agreed to donate 300 rupees per month and acknowledged the potential for the cooking agencies to be put to work.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the members of the Annapoorna Trust and the collector. A group of 4-5 trust representatives approached us and expressed their intention to provide food for the students in our remote village. We appreciate the Trust’s initiative and the efforts of the people involved.

Annapoorna Trust has recognized that the food currently provided to students is inadequate, and has taken the initiative to offer nutritious meals. Their primary concern is the health and well-being of the students, and individuals like Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai are generously funding these efforts instead of requesting payment from us. This organization is dedicated to improving health and education, and understands that good health is essential for academic success and overall life achievement.
