Persistent Foundation team’s visit to schools in Goa

The Persistent Foundation team visited Annapoorna Morning Nutrition beneficiary schools in Goa on 14th December 2023.

Persistent Foundation was established in 2009 to expand the vision and define the scope of Corporate Social Responsibility across Pune, Nagpur, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Goa. The Foundation constantly strives to contribute to the community by upholding the core values of Empowerment – to improve lives through skill development, Sustainability – to provide environment-friendly solutions, and Collaboration – to work hand-in-hand with the community members to enable them. From supporting 40+ NGOs’ endeavours to driving long-term initiatives at the Foundation, Persistent’s CSR impact is growing exponentially in the areas of health, education, and community development in India.

Annapoorna Trust has worked with Persistent Foundation since 2021 in providing SaiSure Malt Multi Nutrient Health Mix for undernourished (SAM & MAM) children between 2 years and 6 years in Telangana and Karnataka to boost their overall immunity and to combat malnutrition.

The team visited 3 schools in Goa and met the teachers and HMs and interacted with the children. Ms. Yogita Apte – Lead CSR, Ms. Pooja, Ms. Akshata, Mr. Rushikesh, and Mr. Vaibhav from Persistent Systems along with ADEI Laurnco Perera and Annapoorna Trust volunteers – Mr. R S Nayak, Mr. Ashok Gaonkar, Mr. Shivanand Meitri, and Mr. Dilkush Sheth were present. Mr. Santosh Allath – National Manager, and Mr. Anil Lingayat – Senior Executive Operations, represented Annapoorna Trust.

Ms. Yogita Apte interacted and spent quality time with the children. She received positive feedback from the children about the delicious taste of the SaiSure Malt Multi Nutrient Health Mix. They communicated to her that they drink every day and are accustomed to the taste. Mr. Rushikesh was incredibly happy meeting the children and was very keen to start Morning Nutrition in Pune, in addition to providing SaiSure Malt Multi Nutrient Health Mix to Anganwadi children.

The team felt immense gratitude and felt more connected to the community after spending the day with the children. The children, too, got a message that they were being loved and cared for. An act of providing a simple morning meal gives a sense of inclusiveness and belongingness in the mind of the child, giving hope and desire to dream big!
