Ashirwaad Feeding Program

  • Ashirwaad Feeding Program

    Remedial programs are designed to close the gap between what a student knows and what he’s expected to know. They often target reading or math skills. In many cases, students are removed from their regular classroom and taught in another setting.

    Many students require extra help. For example, only 35 percent of fourth graders are proficient readers (reading at grade level), according to the most recent National Assessment of Education Progress. There’s a lot of concern about the reading proficiency gap.

    When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, supportive adults, and good nutrition.

    After school programs that participate in Arunodaya Trust give children and teenagers the nutrition they need, and draw them into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning.

    At this moment, more than 900 million people worldwide are going hungry. In fact, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes every day that’s one child every five seconds. These statistics are tragic. But with your help, we can make a real difference. “Hand of Hope” currently provides more than 75 meals on a regular basis…helping to fight hunger one child at a time.
