Business Against Hunger
Business Against Hunger is a campaign by TimePay to unite socially-conscious businesses in India’s fight against malnutrition. Through this campaign, we are trying to increase awareness about the issue of malnutrition, especially among children. Also, we are contributing our small bit to help solve the problem.
As per Global Nutrition Report, there are over 4.60 crore children in India who are stunted or very malnourished. For a country that is making rapid economic progress, it is a matter of distress that such levels of hunger still exist. There are numerous Government initiatives such as mid-day meal programme that are actively addressing the issue. But clearly, a lot remains to be done and our initiative of “Business Against Hunger” is one small step forward.

How does “Businesses Against Hunger” work
Businesses Against Hunger is a programme of TimePay to help underprivileged children to get access to healthy food. It is based on the belief that each business transaction can be an opportunity to help an underprivileged child. We have invited various businesses in India to join this programme. For businesses that join this programme, TimePay commits to pay specified amounts (say Rs. 150) to Akshaya Patra foundation for every timely payment transaction. I.e. When customers pay this business for their invoices on time, TimePay makes the said donation
