Problem Statement

Develop an online strategy that could match a donor with a kitchen, thus involving not only big corporations but a common man to help the day-to-day activity funding. Kitchen may be chosen based on personal criteria such as location, schools it serves food to or children impacted(profiles viewable).

Note: A Kitchen serves food to one or more schools. Children enroll in Schools. And since AkshayaPatra is primarily government sponcered, through this project, individual donors can only donate/track their donations at a kitchen level(not at a child level).

Target Users

A Common man or a Corporation willing to donate.


Web pages (as part of Akshayapatra website) – accessible to Donors/Akshapatra admins
