contractors and vendors adhere to fair
labor practices.



Akshaya Patra Millions of underprivileged children in India are out of school and forced into child labor in order to earn a single meal in a day. The surest way to break out of the cycle of poverty is through education. Akshaya Patra, the world's largest NGO- run mid-day meal program, serves fresh, nutritious meals daily to over 1.3 million children in rural India. For many children this is the only complete meal of the day. The school lunch program creates an incentive for children to go to school and stay in school so they may thrive as adults. Surya makes direct financial contributions to Akshaya Patra and promotes awareness and community support through annual fundraising campaigns.
