Raising Funds For

After the India-wide lockdown, a lot of jobless migrant workers are stuck in cities with hardly any resources. Many started retreating back to their villages. With the loss of livelihoods, a large number of them will now struggle to support their families.

Our instant support is for migrants who are in cities. Our strength and long term focus is on the villages also, where a vast majority is or has retreated. We are geared up for the aftermath of this pandemic, intending to reach out to families who due to paucity of resources and livelihood options are badly affected.

Fund Utilization in 2019

Total funds raised in 2019 - INR 495600

Project NameGoonj
Amount Utilized (INR)495600
Project DescriptionGoonj works with the core philosophy that the excess material lying unused in urban households could be channelized to rural needy areas and could be used as a tool to carry out developmental activities. Materials that have been sitting in a corner of the cupboard could be shared with someone who needs it. Goonj, a 20 years old organization, thus channelizes around 4000 tonnes of a variety of usable material like clothes, school material, sanitary pads, utensils etc. as a critical development resource in remote parts of 22 states of India. The material is not given free of cost rather people get it with a lot of dignity and self- respect in lieu of practical development works that they choose to work on like road cleaning/ repair, making a bamboo school, cleaning water bodies, drainage system etc. Please refer our website for more details: www.goonj.org

Project NameSchool to School
Amount Utilized (INR)428861
Project DescriptionThe School to School initiative targets the urban as well as the rural children. The urban children learn the importance of recycling resources which would otherwise reach the dumping grounds and feel empowered by helping a child their age get back to school. The rural child is provided the supplies as an award and not charity. This helps improve the involvement in class (awards for involvement and attendance) and general hygiene (cleanliness award) and increase their self confidence.
