Austin, TX – The Akshaya Patra Foundation will hold its Virtual Gala called Technology for Change on Saturday, July 25th, to raise funds for feeding migrant families and school children in India.
The organization has served over 68 million meals to migrant workers since India’s lockdown began and feeds 1.8 million Indian children every day during the school year.
Over 1,000 technology professionals and businesses, non-profits, government officials, and philanthropic leaders from around the world are expected to attend and support the organization’s dual mission of addressing childhood hunger and promoting education for
underserved children in India.
Siva Sivaram, President of Western Digital and Akshaya Patra Board Member, will lead thoughtful conversations with Narayana Murthy, founder of Infosys, about the new normal; a world in which technology has exponentially improved lives, but the economy around the world is turbulent.
Mr. Murthy will share his insights about social responsibility, the definition of success, and much more.
The event will also provide a unique Carnatic music experience by none other than, Smt. Bombay Jayashri.
RSVP today to join this insightful conversation and musical performance!
The tech-themed evening will celebrate the beneficiaries, volunteers, chapter teams from Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston who continue to work towards alleviating classroom hunger.
Additionally, donors are continuing to match donations up to $150,000 for COVID-19 relief and alleviating classroom hunger.
