Annapoorna employee meet, 6th March 2024

On 6th March 2024, the employees of Annapoorna Trust gathered at the headquarters in Muddenahalli, Sathya Sai Grama for the Annual Meet.


The event began with the management core team members expressing their thoughts on the successful exponential growth of serving 3 million to 9 million children, across 25 states and 4 union territories. Insightful discussions on improvements, adapting different approaches in the management of day-to-day activities, and ways of efficient coordination from each of the departments of Annapoorna ensuring last mile reach, were made.


Mr. Anand K Kadali (Executive Secretary and Trustee of Annapoorna Trust) briefed the gathering about the progress over the year. While there was significant expansion, he stressed the various challenges faced while meeting diverse groups of people during the implementation of morning nutrition in different states. He pointed out that there are crores of children still who need proper nutrition every single day and hence a lot more needs to be done. He highlighted the need to focus on expansion in North and Northeastern states so that many more children benefit from the fortified health drink, SaiSure, that would aid in physical and mental development and eliminate deficiencies. He concluded by expressing his happiness in working towards the vision of ‘Let No Child Go to School Hungry, Ever!’

The employees next proceeded to meet our Chairman and Founder, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai. Inspiring the employees, Sadguru said while all of us are beaming with happiness on achieving the number of 9 million children, he said that this is just the beginning and we should be ready with spirited minds to take the mission forward. He advised all to make use of working in Annapoorna as a means to progress on the spiritual path, moving from aham (ego) to dasoham (servitude) to naham (not me) to ultimately soham (one with everything).


Explaining that serving children satiates the kshuda, which is hunger in children, He said this need to be done with the attitude of dasoham and if done with the attitude of mundane work, there will be little inner progress for us.

He expressed His happiness about how Annapoorna is collaborating with the governments of Telangana and Karnataka and serving the entire gamut of children across 25 states and 4 union territories. He blessed everybody present to continue the good work by collaborating with governments (sarkara) and various corporate partners (sanstha) to reach out to many more needy children.


Thus, the event concluded with reflections on past achievements and challenges, and highly inspired employees aligned with the unified vision of ‘Let No Child go to School Hungry, Ever!’
