The Akshaya Patra Foundation (TAPF) has recently partnered with Pearson India, the world’s leading learning company, to provide basic educational amenities for underprivileged children. Pearson India has provided essential supplies in forms of books, materials, etc. to ensure the continuity of learning for school children in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh.
Through the collaboration with Pearson India, over 30,000+ pencil boxes and other stationery items have been provided to underprivileged children, as a consequence of TAPF’s commitment to create a better learning environment and support the mission of ‘no children losing out on education due to hunger’.
