Renowned musician and rapper Badshah celebrated his birthday in a meaningful and impactful way by collaborating with the social impact organization Feeding India. The artist spent nearly two hours at Rishi Valmiki Eco School in Goregaon, an educational institution catering to lower-income groups supported by Feeding India under the Poshan to Pathshala program.
Expressing his gratitude, Badshah stated, “I’m grateful to Feeding India for giving me an opportunity to celebrate my birthday in a more meaningful manner.” He expressed his commitment to addressing malnutrition issues and encouraging the youth to play a pivotal role in bringing about positive change, ultimately striving to make India malnutrition-free.
During his time with the children, Badshah emphasized the critical role of nutrition in overall well-being and actively participated in distributing homemade lunch, including rajma rice and fruits, to over 500 children. Additionally, he pledged a donation of Rs 10 lakh to the school, partook in cutting a substantial birthday cake, and joined the children in a performance featuring his radio superhit ‘Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai.’
This collaboration marks Badshah’s commitment to becoming a Poshan Champion, dedicated to the eradication of hunger and malnutrition. It aligns with Feeding India’s long-term vision of making India malnutrition-free. Beyond this initiative, Badshah has been involved in humanitarian projects with Tata Memorial Hospital and Dharavi Dream Project, demonstrating an active role in causes supporting women and children.
Feeding India, in collaboration with Zomato since 2019, has served over 15 crore meals across 25-plus cities through partnerships with credible NGOs and government entities. The community mobilization program initiated by Feeding India via the Feeding India Concert has grown significantly, inspiring over 30,000 youth, known as Poshan Champions, to lead positive change. Vishal Kumar, Head of Feeding India, expressed gratitude to Badshah for his support as a Poshan Champion and emphasized the organization’s commitment to strengthening its volunteer network and collaborating with influential voices to amplify their message.
Looking ahead, Feeding India aims to focus on community mobilization and artist collaborations to deepen its impact and influence, championing the cause of eradicating malnutrition.
