Nurse Heroes seeks to provide every nurse with the resources and opportunities they need and create a future without a shortage of nurses.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation's (“TAPF”) mission is to simultaneously address childhood hunger and malnutrition in India and to increase underprivileged children's access to education. TAPF's vision is that no child shall be deprived of education because of hunger. The Sanskrit words “Akshaya Patra,” meaning inexhaustible vessel, aptly reflects the aspirations of the organization to provide unlimited food to underprivileged children and mitigate their sufferings. The organization's long term goal is to replicate this model throughout India and the world. Our partnership with the Government of India and various State Governments, along with the persistent support from corporates, individual donors, and well-wishers have helped us to grow from serving just 1,500 children in 5 schools in 2000 to serving 1.8 million children. Today, Akshaya Patra is the world’s largest (not-for-profit run) Mid-Day Meal Programme serving wholesome food every school day to over 1.8 million children from 19,039 schools across 14 states & 2 Union territory of India.

We create peace of mind by providing compassionate care and support to those who need us. People of all ages turn to Avow for various kinds of support. As a result, we cast our mission statement to define our 'customers' as "those who need us;" similarly, we defined the universal service we provide as "creating peace of mind." Some people we help are terminally ill, others are grieving. Some need education on how to be a compassionate caregiver. Some are children working through a loss. Because there is such variety in our clients and why they turn to us, we think our mission statement explains what we universally work to provide: peace of mind.
