Only one thing kept Suchismita going to school.

Suchismita is from a poor family in Orissa. Her father runs a tea stall and earns very little each day. Her mother takes a few stitching orders to help the family, but even then they never have enough money.

Suchismita is the eldest of three siblings. Two of them study in school. When the youngest child was born, her parents wanted to stop sending Suchismita to school. They worried that the expenses would be too much and education was not a priority to them.

When The Akshaya Patra foundation began their mid-day meal program in Suchismita’s school, her parents changed their minds. This gave both Suchismita and her sibling healthy, well-cooked meals once a day without fail. Her parents knew that their varying daily income could not promise much to the children. So that guarantee of nutrition was a blessing to their family.

Suchismita is an active student who loves to learn new things. Her favourite subjects are English and Social Science. Someday she hopes to become a teacher who can inspire children like her to create a better life.

One good meal a day is a strong incentive for parents to send their children to school. You could help families like Suchismita’s by supporting the mid-day meal program. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.
