Adamya Chetana 's philosophy resonates with Swami Vivekananda 's vision “each soul is potentially divine"
What started off as a small effort, has today taken a mammoth form and has benefited lakhs of children across thousands of schools. Ananth Kumar's global outlook and vast exposure, coupled with Tejaswini's eye for details and meticulous planning and execution has made Adamya Chetana a social movement that is unique in the country.
The projects of Adamya Chetana have enhanced the Nourishment, Learning and Health of thousands of under privileged children.
As an NGO, Adamya Chetana feeds over 2,00,000 under-privileged, needy school children with Government support. The hot nutritious midday meal is cooked at Bengaluru, Hubli, Gulbarga and Jodhpur in Rajasthan. With an innovative and path breaking approach, Adamya Chetana's Midday meal program has become a role model for other Midday meal providers across the country. This has been appreciated gratefully by thousands of parents, children, teachers & the public at large.
Adamya chetana cooks for 2 lakh children daily, which has created economies of scale. Voluntary participation has further reduced the costs to around Rs. 2.15 per meal excluding cost of rice. This includes cost of oil, vegetables, dal, spices, fuel, transportation, cooking and other processing costs. The government provides rice and Rs. 1.81 per child towards conversion charges.
Other activities of Adamya Chetana include a unique mobile resource facility "Aata Paatha" (play - learn). The uniqueness of this program is that a mobile unit, fitted with educational gadgets like computers, sports equipments, costumes for drama, teaching aids, books, drawing & paint material, audio visual equipments, etc., visits different schools situated in slums of Bengaluru making teaching- learning a fun experience.
Adamya Chetana as a torchbearer has created a number of unique interventions that are replicable and first of its kind in the country. One such step is "Chinnara Chetana" - the Wall magazine of Adamya Chetana. This colorful monthly wall magazine brings colour to the otherwise drab walls of Government schools. This wall magazine reaches 23,000 schools of Karnataka with the support of Sarva Shikshana Abhiyan Misson.
Arogya Chetana, a program focused on providing health cover to the school children was inaugurated by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam benefiting thousands of school children, providing them hospitalization cover at practically zero cost. This program has a potential to cover millions of school children across the length and breadth of India.
