This is a PowerPoint of a place I visited in India with Primary Source, a global institute in Watertown, MA. Akshaya Patra is an organization started by the Hari Krishna movement to create clean kitchens to feed students in schools of need. Akshaya Patra has created jobs for women and have fed thousands of children across India. Feel tummies, and you will feed their minds.

  1. 1. Civics in IndiaThe “Rights” of Children (an integration of literacy, science and social studies)By Marcy Prager – marcyprager@mac.comJuly, 2011
  2. 2. What is Civics?Civics is a person’s rights and dutiesas a citizen. What rights do you have at home? What duties do you have at home? What rights do you have in school? What duties do you have in school?
  3. 3. Childrens’ RightsEvery child in America has basic rights: the right to be protected, to be safe from harm the right to get an education the chance to express yourself and be heard the right to good health care the right of basic needs of nourishment, clothing and housing the right not to be exploited.
  4. 4. “My Civil Rights”- Cartoon You have a lot of “prior knowledge” of your own “civil rights” as a child, living your life on a day- to-day basis. Take a large piece of white construction paper and fold it into six equal and fair boxes. In each box, depict one new “civil right” you have practiced, using you, your family members, your teachers, or your friends as the main characters.
  5. 5. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child Twenty years ago, the United Nations wrote down the basic rights that all children, boy or girl, healthy or ill, black or white, rich or poor, with different kinds of families and different abilities, must have. This is an agreement between all the countries. India, too has signed this agreement.
  6. 6. Many Children in India Still Do Not Have These Rights Many children in India are not experiencing these rights. Many children beg in the city streets for money. Many children do not go to school. Many children are exploited. Many children are malnourished. 40 million children in India work as child laborers.
  7. 7. Not every child in India has the “right” to a good education. Many children in India who do get a chance to go to school go to government-run schools which are often dirty. Many children are not taught well. They don’t have books or toys or math manipulatives to use as they solve problems. Most families do not have the money to send their children to better schools. Many children do not know how to read or write.
  8. 8. Working Together to Fix the Problem Civics is when people have a shared problem and get together to try and solve the problem. Many people in India want to ensure the rights of all children.
  9. 9. Good Nutrition is a Child’s RightFamous author Pearl S. Buck wrote,“Food for all is a necessity. Food should not be amerchandise, to be bought and sold as jewels arebought and sold by those who have the money tobuy. Food is a human necessity, like water and air, itshould be available.”
  10. 10. Akshaya PatraThe Akshaya Patra foundation was established bythe Hari Krishna movement to “ensure that no childis deprived of education because of hunger.” A group of caring individuals got together to start a foundation that would help poor, underprivileged families, ensuring that their children would be fed healthy, nutritious meals in government schools.

  12. 12. The Akshaya Patra’s Beliefs A mid-day meal program will increase school enrollment. Nutritious foods will will reduce or decrease school dropouts. Students who are well fed will have the energy to do well in school. Good technology will provide high quality nutrition at a low cost.
