“Education is a dream for me, but there is no time for me to go to school. I have to spend the entire day earning money so that I can afford at least one meal. But, if I did go to school, I would definitely become a doctor!” These were the words of Megha, a 13-year old girl from a village in the outskirts of Bangalore, India.
Coming from a First World country, I was in dismay after hearing about Megha’s plight, which resembled more than 61 million kids in India. After hearing about children like Megha, I knew that it was time for me to make a difference in the world and Akshaya Patra was the perfect means for me to achieve my goal!
