Youth Ambassador

Hi there! We are the Yappies…the Youth Ambassadors of Akshaya Patra. We are a group of dynamic, creative, and thoughtful young people, determined to make a difference in this world through our awareness and fundraising intiatives.

We’re so grateful to be a part of an organization that gives back to our heritage and culture in such an impactful way with the gift of a meal. This excites and motivates us to be the voices of those children of India here in the US by spotlighting our cause around our local communities.
