Former President (late) Dr A P J Abdul Kalam used to constantly stress the need to transform India into a developed nation. He believed that for achieving this goal, an integrated action was needed.

He believed that India needed to have food security, economic security and national security enroute to becoming a developed nation.

National security

Food security is probably the first step towards national security.

For food security, Kalam had listed out five areas, including agriculture and food processing, reliable and quality electric power, surface transport and infrastructure for all parts of the country, education and healthcare. Information and communication technology and self-reliance in critical technologies were inter-related and if they progressed in a coordinated way, the country would ultimately enjoy food, economic and, hence, national security.

Towards meeting this goal, an NGO in India like The Akshaya Patra Foundation plays a major role.

Kalam believed that rural prosperity is imperative. For bringing rural prosperity, the creation of three connectivities viz. physical, electronic, and knowledge leading to economic connectivity. For knowledge that would ensure prosperity, first of all the people need to be literate.


For the citizens to play a constructive role in the progress of a democracy and Republic like ours, it's important that they have the right education and ability to understand the working of the economy.

In addition, literacy has proved to give better access to formal sector employment for poor households. With more education, people from rural areas have the incentive to migrate to urban areas for better jobs, higher wages and better prospects of life. Because of this, more people are coming into the manufacturing industry and leaving traditional agriculture.

According to the Harris-Todaro Model, this increasing labor entering manufacture helps both agriculture and manufacture laborers. The labor in agriculture decreases which leads to an increase in their wages.

Role of citizenry

Our 69-year-old Republic has been growing in strength as a democracy. This has been possible because of an enlightened citizenry. In being so, the role of the NGO has been a very important one.

It's the NGO that keeps the citizens alert about their rights. The society will then be in a position to ensure their rights are not taken away on various pretexts, especially when the leaders are over-enthusiastic about making the country prosperous. A basic need like food for all should be primary.

Right to Food

The Constitution that was adopted on January 26, 1950 had envisaged a future country that has no issues when it came to basic needs of people like food. But, even after decades there are millions who are in need of help. Since the founding of Akshaya Patra 17 years ago, it has been doing its mite to ensure that children do not drop out of school for want of food.

Akshaya Patra’s mid-day meals reach over 1.6 million school-going children. These children are from the 13,839 schools across the 12 states in India. As the programme expands you can play a role by donating to charity to expand the project to feed the children.
