Donor Recognition – Mukund Padmanabhan

For 10 years the Guru Krupa Foundation has been supporting various charitable causes in India and The United States. Mukund Padmanabhan, the founder of the Guru Krupa Foundation explains: “One of the priorities of the foundation is the advancement of children’s causes. Children in the lower income strata in India are particularly vulnerable to becoming ensnared in the cycle of poverty. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to achieve material success have a moral obligation to give something back to those who are vulnerable. And contributing to a child’s well-being and future is bound to be a long-term investment for society.” ” 

When asked “What inspires you about working with Akshaya Patra?” Mukund said: “ What I like about AP is the efficiency of the organization. Not only are their industrial scale kitchens impressive, but also the process that they have developed for delivering those prepared hot meals to schools as far as 50 km away from the kitchens. The whole organization runs like a well-oiled machine.”

A huge thank you to Mukund Padmanabhan and The Guru Krupa Foundation for their fantastic work and unwavering support and dedication to Akshaya Patra and our beneficiaries.
