100, 000 Acts of Giving

Public Collection Centres


April 22nd to 30th, 2017 

Every piece of cloth or under-utilized material you contribute to Goonj becomes a powerful resource for development work.
Goonj reaches the collected material not as charity but as reward to people who put their labor and wisdom into addressing their most difficult challenges like making roads, digging wells, cleaning ponds etc. Let's do our bit - start with ourselves and spread to the world all across..Let’s do our bit - start with ourselves and then spread to the world all across..

Goonj’s ‘100,000 acts of Giving’ is a pan India campaign, giving every Indian an opportunity to take out any used/unused but USABLE household material and give it

This is an effort to Dignify Giving and use urban material as a resource, not as charity!!

Do encourage more people to do the same !!
