Every item purchased means a meal for a hungry child
“Changing The Lives Of Children, One Meal at A Time”
At The Stone Flooring, the communities we work with have always been integral to us. We believe that we have a responsibility to work for the benefit of the families of craftspeople, artisans and society at large.
To fulfil our responsibility, we actively work with partners such as ‘The Akshaya Patra Foundation’. We aim to serve meals to thousands of school children, because no child should have to choose between hunger and education.
We want our customers to feel like they are making a difference too, so every square metre of material purchased from The Stone Flooring will provide a meal for a child in need. If you buy 50 square metres of natural stone for your patio, you will be giving 50 meals to the children who need it most!
Let's do something good.
Why We Do It
EVERY CHILD COUNTS
Educated and well-fed, our children are our future.
Children are the most visible victims of undernutrition. It is estimated that undernutrition - including stunting, wasting, deficiencies of vitamin A and zinc, and fetal growth restriction (when a baby does not grow to its normal weight before birth) - is the cause of 3.1 million child deaths annually. Some 45% of all child deaths in 2011 (UNICEF, World Health Organization [WHO], & The World Bank, 2018).
With your help, we want to continue providing these underprivileged children with healthy and nutritious meals every single day to give them the opportunities in life that they deserve. Nourishing their minds as well as their bodies to prepare them for the challenges of tomorrow.
As part of our corporate social responsibility and values of supporting the right to education of socio-economically disadvantaged children, we are cultivating a successful partnership with the Akshaya Patra Foundation.
How We Do It
Strength with Partners
Today, the Akshaya Patra Foundation is the world’s largest not-for-profit Mid-Day Meal Programme serving wholesome lunches every school day to over 1.8 million children from 19,039 schools and counting. This couldn’t be achieved without the support of locally based charity experts who help with the logistics of delivering these meals directly to schools.

Why It Matters
More Than a Meal
Feeding impoverished children is only the beginning. At The Stone Flooring, we believe there is so much that can be done to put an end to generational poverty around the world by providing a safe and supportive environment where our children can learn and change the world. So, we need your help!
