The challenges of development are complex. It is easy to think about the challenge of providing education to the underprivileged as one that involves making available schools and educational materials. While that is important, in many developing countries the problems of access to food, mobility and education, gender equity etc are often linked. How can one organisation address all of these Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)? Our story focuses on an extraordinary NGO called Akshaya Patra, a legendary food bowl that is always full.
SLX Swiss Learning Exchange decided to gift a video to a foundation in India. We have called the video “SLX Story on Akshay Patra :fighting hunger in India ” It is a story about one single organisation, which addresses 10 of the 17 sustainable development goals, through its work alone. It is a Harvard Case study and has come in the Stanford Innovation Review for its innovative scaling up.
