Hunger and Illiteracy are India’s two major challenges. There is a serious malnutrition case in India with the World Bank’ estimate of 60 million children in India, being underweight. Hunger is an obstacle to every child's health, education and survivial.
A recent UNICEF report states that more than 80 million children drop out before completing 8 years of age. Akshaya Patra is focused on eliminating classroom hunger, increasing enrolment in schools, and reducing drop out rates in schools by feeding filling, nutritious mid-day meal, every school day. We, at Anamika Khanna, pledge to support Akshaya Patra through our ‘one for one’ initiative.
Anamika Khanna showcased in London during the inaugural Sparkle Gala and helped raise over GBP 300,000 for the Akshaya Patra Foundation, which feeds over 1.6 million school children everyday.
Through the show 'Falak Ki Jhalak' — in aid of the Tata Medical Center in Calcutta, Anamika Khanna contributed over 90 lakhs to keep the flame of hope burning brighter among affected underprivileged cancer patients.
Tata Medical Center, Calcutta initiated a 'Dil Sey Deejiye' campaign in which the company eagerly participated to help the non-profiit cancer research facility raise funds.
Anamika Khanna has participated in many events and shows to help raise awareness and funds for several social causes.
