CSR: Giving Every Dream a Chance

Giving Every Dream a Chance

Every child has a dream and each dream is valid. This is because their dreams, thoughts, and aspirations make children what they are. An event showcasing the beneficiaries of Akshaya Patra’s “Giving Every Dream a Chance”—a special initiative to nurture children with unique dreams was held at Taj Yeshwantpur, Bangalore. It is a humble attempt to identify children with special dreams and give them the opportunity to realise these dreams.

Starting with three children, ‘Giving Every Dream a Chance’ as an initiative has scaled up to mentor more than 300 children from 15 Government Schools in Bengaluru, Hubballi, Hyderabad, and Vrindavan. Taking due note of their passion, these children were supported with mentorship programs, wherein they were coached, groomed, and guided by the experts of their respective fields. The children were provided training in various fields, including Dance, Theatre, Origami, Math, Science, English, and Football.

The event was graced by Padma Shri Honoree Shri D. R. Kaarthikeyan, Advisor- Law Human Rights – Corporate Affairs and former Director General of National Human Rights Commission, Director of CBI, Special Director General CRPF as the Chief Guest.

As a part of the Giving Every Dream a Chance initiative, children with unique dreams were identified and mentored by experts from various fields. This unique programme was launched on June 11, 2016, at the Vivanta by Taj by Chief Guest, Mrs Sudha Murty – Chairperson, Infosys Foundation. The event was presided by Shri Madhu Pandit Dasa – Chairman of The Akshaya Patra Foundation, in the presence of Mohandas Pai who also serves as an independent trustee of the Foundation.  Akshay Patra is aiming to reach 5000 beneficiaries across the country in the coming year.
