KGiSL Educational Institutions embarked on a philanthropic initiative, Annadaana, on 19th May 2021 to serve over 1000 underprivileged people every day for a month. Collaborating with the NGO No Food Waste, the group is committing to lend a helping hand during the pandemic to those with little or no access to food or supplies.
Each member of the KGiSL EDU family, including students, professors, and staff, will contribute to this noble cause. Aligning with their motto of imparting value-based education to students, the group strives to sensitize the students to the trials of the lower rungs of society, driving social awareness through such initiatives.
Annadaana will cater to construction workers, sanitation workers, gardeners, dump yard and scrapyard workers, painters, daily wagers, CMC contract workers, tailors, housemaids, economically challenged families, unemployed and tribal people.
No Food Waste started as a movement and has now turned into an NGO started by Padmanaban Gopalan and his friends to get rid of the rampant problem – hunger. The initiative was started in Coimbatore and later expanded to other districts in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana.
