During the inaugural ceremony, Bhavin Pandya and Trivikraman Thampy, co-founders and CEO’s of Games24x7 said, “Ensuring that our children grow up in caring, nourishing and healthy environments where they get the right opportunities to learn, and progress is of critical importance. These must be provided through means that are accessible and can be delivered to their doorsteps. For this, we are delighted to join hands with Akshaya Patra Foundation and join them in their mission to ensure that no child is deprived of education because of hunger.”

Mathan Varkey, National Director and Corporate Partnerships, Akshaya Patra Foundation said, “A survey by IIM Kolkata shows that the average reading score of children who are beneficiaries of the Mid-Day Meal Scheme was 80% higher than those who aren’t. My sincere thanks to Games24x7 for this partnership and we envision this being a long-term relationship.”

To create sustainable and lasting change, it is vital for all stakeholders to create such platforms and empower organizations already working at the grass-root level. With this as a first step, Games24x7 hopes to continue to positively contribute towards the cause of child welfare in India.
