Helping Akshaya Patra feed the vulnerable during the pandemic
The Covid-19 crisis disproportionately affected daily wage earners and migrant workers who struggled to make ends meet during these times. As the nation-wide lockdown came into effect, many of them were ousted from their rental accommodations in the cities they worked in, and became stranded, with no way to access even basic necessities like food. Kinara Capital passed on contributions from employees, as well as contributed a portion of its CSR funds to the Akshaya Patra Foundation to provide 30,000 hot meals to daily wage worker communities during this time of need.

Kinara Capital CSR FY 2020-21
Our CSR projects continue to focus on empowering women micro-entrepreneurs that are creating a powerful impact in their communities. For FY20-21, we will be strengthening our existing model and impact with SEWA Federation by revitalizing the Trupti Nashta Co-op through a zero- interest working capital loan program. This year, we have also partnered with Children of India (CIF) to provide micro-entrepreneurial vocational training, support and startup capital to many disadvantaged young women in Karnataka who are victims of the exploitative Devadasi tradition.
