Learning and absorbing will off course be a part of the process but we want you to take back something for a lifetime. At Goonj things are quite focused and goal oriented but we take our mantra of ‘Masti mey kaam and kaam mey Masti’ very seriously!!. If you have an open mind, doer attitude and tons of excitement to experiment, this is the place for you..  Some days maybe mundane or repetitive but Think about it this way.. ‘Behind every beautiful garden there are gardeners who are constantly at work, getting their hands dirty.” Goonj is known pan India and worldwide because of its attention to minute details so that the last person’s dignity is nurtured. Your activity, however mundane, adds value to what is reached out with dignity to the last person. How is that for meaningful work?
