Mrinmay now has hope to keep going.
Mrinmay Malakar is a young boy from Khudradadhi, a village around 12 kilometers from Guwahati. He goes to lower primary school but his family can barely afford this education.
Mrinmay’s father is the only earning member of their family. He works as a labourer but he earns only about Rs. 2000 ($31) in a month. This meagre sum is nowhere near enough to make ends meet for the family.
They cannot afford three proper meals on most days. The family lives on plain rice or pitha - a bread made of rice flour. Mrinmay does not get the nutrition he needs at home as there are no vegetable or lentils in his diet. He had a hard time concentrating at school but his parents were helpless.
Akshayapatra’s mid-day meal program came as a boon for the family. Mrinmay now gets a wholesome and nutritious meal at school every day. This gives him the enthusiasm to come to school and the energy to get through the day.
