We have all experienced exam stress sometime during our lives. There are many lifestyle changes the entire family undergoes when a child is preparing to appear for an examination.
For the students at Akshaya Vidya centres, most parents are not aware of the pressure that a child undergoes at the time of examinations or the dietary changes that could help the children to mitigate the stress and focus instead. There have been cases where children chose to just drop out of school because they were unable to take the pressure of exams and parents did not see the need to guide the children otherwise, owing to their lack of awareness. they do not realise that they are contributed to the long list of 'school dropouts'.
JUST INR 2250 WILL IMPROVE THE LIVES OF 30 STUDENTS
At Akshaya Vidya, the focus is not only on education but also on ways to create a healthy & supportive environment for children to continue their education and perform well in their examinations. The parents are educated on the importance of being supportive and encouraging their children to focus on the revision, and not overworking them. But the work doesn't end there, it has been proven that dietary changes during the time of examination have shown to have noticeable changes in the performance of the children.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly. It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
