About the Project

The Chinmaya Annapoorna project is a divine vision of Pujya Swami Abhedananda (Spiritual Head of Chinmaya Mission of South Africa) that aims to feed over 2000 underprivileged people daily. Physically located at the Rajput Hall, 9 Trisula Avenue, Chatsworth, this magnanimous endeavour entails the construction of a sacred Annapoorna Devi temple and an industrial kitchen capable of serving the most downtrodden members of the society daily.

Communities in and around the Chatsworth area are plagued by the pangs of poverty and the challenges of poor socio-economic conditions. Many go through days without a single meal including children studying at school. The underprivileged are constantly trying to survive poor living conditions, hunger and limited access to medical assistance. They are in constant need of love and support of those who are more fortunate. This project will aim to address this very need by identifying those in need of the nutritional support, preparing and delivering the meals to them.

Detail designs and plan approvals have been completed to date. The construction of the project will commence in April 2023 with a vision to inaugurate the feeding in 2024. Significant funds are needed for a project of this scale and you can become a pillar of support toward achieving this. Every rand, every dollar, every hour of seva spent and every good wish for the success of this grand vision will mean many will go bed with at least one meal in a day.

2) Make personal Calls and send Whatsapp messages to them (Message script will be shared with you). Make 10-12 calls every day
