Before founding Surya, my father was a teacher in a small village in India and recognized early on the role of education as a catalyst for social mobility. Growing up in rural India, I have witnessed firsthand the many hardships that families and children there must contend with on a daily basis. As a result, we have built a company that is committed to improving access to education and nutrition in areas where our products are made and beyond.

On October 4th, I will be running my third half marathon in Atlanta with 44 other Surya employees as part of our annual Miles for Meals campaign. Each year I have been humbled by the generosity of our customers and partners and honored that so many of you share our passion and commitment to make a positive impact on society. This year we have set a lofty goal to raise $50,000 for Akshaya Patra, one of the world’s largest NGO-run school lunch programs. The organization serves more than 1.4 million children throughout rural India a freshly prepared, nutritious lunch daily—for many children, their only complete meal for the day. The meal serves as an incentive for children to go to school and stay in school, leading to better enrollment, attendance, performance and nutrition.
