Kavoor Government School

The Akshya Patra programme was launched at the Kavoor Government School in Mangalore. The midday meal programme of the Akshaya Patra Foundation here has extended the midday meal for over 200 children of the school.

According to the co-ordinator of the programme, Nama Nishtha Das, after launching the midday meal programme in the school, attendance has improved in the school and the teachers are happy. Many children who had dropped out due to their inability to return home for lunch have now re-joined the school. According to Mr. Das, many children come from poor families and some of the parents work in distant places and are unable to send food to the children at school. The Kavoor school management is happy that the school is experiencing a steady growth in attendance.
