The journey of Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust Organisation with BIAL began in early 2018, after both the organizations discovered a joint interest in providing morning nutrition to school-going kids. Initially, they sponsored the distribution of biscuits to around 110 or 120 schools in the Devanahalli district.
Later, they administered funds to provide cooked breakfast to about 60-70 schools in the Devanahalli area. This program was designed to improve rural and underprivileged children’s health and in line with the motto of our organization, “Let no child go to school hungry ever!”
