Let's READ - Support Children Suffering from Life Threatening Illnesses

Let's READ is United Way Mumbai's campaign to reach out to 5000 underprivileged children and provide them with the opportunity to experience the joy of reading.

My Appeal

Children of all ages need books to read which help them in development of their personality. During our childhood, we all had our one favorite book which may have been a cartoon series, mythology or even science. I am here asking for help to get these books available to those who can not afford it. The people from underprivileged communities are deprived of the joy of reading. So let's come together to ensure they can read..

Project Details

Make-a-Wish Foundation is dedicated to granting the most cherished wish of children between the ages of 3 to 18 years, living with life threatening illnesses, irrespective of their socio-economic status, caste, race or religion. The daily battle of survival that these children face is eased by fulfilling their most cherished wishes, which, in turn has a therapeutic effect. For these children, a wish fulfillment brings hope of a possible future, when none is guaranteed. 

Our campaign will give these deserving children a necessary opportunity to experience the pleasure of reading.

Target: 200 Children. 8 Mini-Libraries. 2200 Books.

Greenesha 2016 - During Immersion

United Way Mumbaiís campaign, aptly titled Greenesha or Green Ganesha, aims to transform the way in which we celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi and make it environment friendly. It is a unique, high impact community engagement i

My Appeal

Hey all, Ganesh Chaturthi is nearing and we are all ready to celebrate the arrival of our beloved god of wisdom. As every year, the festival brings joy and happiness to our families and brings them all together. As we prepare for the festival ahead, United Way Mumbai (UWM) is preparing to make this festival Eco- friendly to ensure no environmental damage is caused. UWM's Greenesha campaign aims to create awareness on environmentally friendly methods of celebrating Ganesha festival. Through Greenesha, we aim to: 1. Build a citizen movement for an environmentally friendly celebration of the Ganesh festival 2. Create a path breaking opportunity for students across Mumbai to be catalysts for change 3. Visibly reduce waste disposal in the cityís water bodies during and after Ganesh immersion 4. Ensure the waste collected is appropriately treated and converted to organic manure I request you to contribute to this cause and help us make this Ganesha Festival environmentally friendly.

Project Details

UWM will organise a Nirmalya  collection drive at major city beaches, wherein college youth will request Ganesh Mandals to dispose Nirmalya as per MCGM requirements instead of immersing it in the city's water bodies. College youth will also segregate and collect the Nirmalya to be put in the designated waste containers allocated by the municipal authorities. This waste will then be taken for further treatment to be converted into organic manure. 

You can ensure a clean and green Ganesh festival celebration by supporting us in the following activities
