Post-COVID pandemic, sustained expansion is the buzzword of Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust to achieve the desired goal of “Let No Child Go To School Hungry Ever!”.
27-May-2023 was the Annual Meet Day for all of Annapoorna Trustees and Employees to conglomerate at Sathya Sai Grama – Head office of Annapoorna Trust. This was a momentous day for all the employees from across the nation who serve in their respective states in improving the nutrition quotient of rural school children, to join the meet and seek guidance from our Founder, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai.
The day began at Atma Deep Hall, wherein all the employees introduced themselves with a punch dialogue to get to know each other in a unique way. We could notice the eagerness of the new joiners in getting to know more about their seniors and colleagues.
Mr. Anand Kumar Kadali – Trustee & Secretary, and Mr. Sai Prasad Ivaturi – Trustee and Treasurer, led the team from the front.
To name a few who spoke on the occasion,
Mr. Kiran B P – Regional Manager of Karnataka, emphasized on channelling Swami’s love through our conduct and behaviour.
Mr. Vivek Kumar – Manager, Social Media Management, spoke of working in Annapoorna Trust as an amalgamation of all cultures.
Mr. Dhananjay Rao Ejapu – Regional Manager of Telangana expressed his happiness in expanding the reach of SaiSure millet health mix.
Mrs. Anandhi Hemanth – Content writer for Annapoorna Trust, stated as working in Annapoorna has been a game changer in her life, to be associated in this grand mission of combating hidden hunger in children.
Mr. Santhosh N K – Executive Operations, shared his happiness in his involvement in getting children from marginalized sections of society to join the Sathya Sai group of Educational institutions.
Mr. Rajashekar K N – Executive Operations, who administers the RO plant and related projects, primarily expressed his joy in seeing the smiles of children, which cannot be compared with any other kind of happiness.
All Operations team members shared their experiences with the team in their own unique way and in their regional dialects. Each one shared their thoughts on working in Annnapoorna Trust, which also enables them to serve the children and society at large.
The limelight of the day was the much-awaited evening session when we received direct guidance from our Founder, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai. He lovingly shared His views of working in tandem with the government as the way forward, along with collaborating with Corporate and Institutional partners for the greater good of the children and the nation. He went on to say how the SaiSure Nutraceutical Facility at Muddenahalli benefits lakhs of children across the nation. He also expressed his plans to set up similar facilities across other regions in our country, especially in Northern India. All these efforts aid in bridging the gap between urban and rural areas. ‘Annapoorna Trust would grow leaps and bounds in the years to come benefiting the rural school children,’ He said.
We could notice happiness in the faces of each of them for having met each other face-to-face instead of the usual online calls to share their thoughts and experiences they face on a day-to-day basis. It was a day of reckoning which bolstered the zeal and direction of employees to work towards the greater good of our motherland in achieving a Nourished Society.
