Collaborations with Governments

The Annapoorna Breakfast Program is targeted to address hunger and malnutrition of school going children in rural areas. In such areas, most children are enrolled in local Government schools. Thus, to ensure that Annapoorna’s various nutrition programs reach the needy children and benefit them, the support of the state Governments is critical. Therefore, Annapoorna has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the state Governments of Karnataka, Puduchery, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana to seek the necessary support and permissions. Further, depending upon the requirements of the Govt. and the needs of the children, Annapoorna has several models of engagement.

It’s a happy news to everyone that Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust is celebrating its anniversary. Even more happier news is that in our state of Karnataka, free nutritious breakfast is being served at 850 government schools covering over 60,000 school children. The Trust is also implementing such yeoman service in another 10 Indian states serving breakfast for 1 lakh schools children. Government of Karnataka is providing free midday meals.. In the coming future, Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust with its collaboration with Government of Karnataka shall also work towards providing free and nutritious breakfast to these children. This is my humble request to the Trust officials.

Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust, Muddenahalli has started the pilot project of serving breakfast in over 200 Government schools reaching more than 12,000 primary school children. Many children come to school on an empty stomach and without any breakfast how can we expect them to study well! These children come from a poor background and hence they don’t have any breakfast. We will start this programme with schools around Bhimli, Pedagantayada and Chinagadili and slowly expand to other areas as well. My idea is to expand this service to 1 lakh children in the coming months and then expand it to the entire state. Many like-minded individuals / NGO’s such as Annapoorna Trust must come forward to make this noble initiative a grand success and the next generation, our children, healthier in mind and body. And for the success of this programme, our Government will provide all the support and might that is required.

I thank Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust for their commitment and support to government school children. The Annapoorna Breakfast program which is now providing breakfast to more than 12000 school children in over 200+ schools of Visakhapatnam Rural , Bheemunipatnam and Vizianagaram Mandal is highly appreciable.The feedback confirms that the breakfast served in this program is hygienic, tasty and beneficial to the children. The satisfactory levels of the children and parents are very high. There is a big demand from parents and children of other Mandals for extension of the programme to other schools and Mandals. We hope that the pilot breakfast program will soon be expanded to cover all Government schools in Andhra Pradesh. My special thanks to all the team members of Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust for their generous support to the project. My best wishes for scaling up of the Annapoorna Breakfast program across all Govt schools in Andhra Pradesh State.
