Welcome to the web site of Oru Paanai
Oru Paanai means One Pot, which is a familiar Tamil expression.
It describes our shared heritage and humble beginnings.
It evokes a sense of communal responsibility, sharing life's most basic need - food - our food, from OUR PANAAI, with those who are less fortunate.
There are three branches of activity - read more here. Within its feeding programme alone, Oru Paanai is now supporting 33,000 children in 311 schools PER DAY. See the full list here.
