At Goonj material is a powerful currency for development work. Nothing is waste.. Since we work pan India across thousands of villages and in big disasters, we need material in bulk.. If you are passionate about using urban surplus in a meaningful way, bringing dignity and development to people who have little, we are looking for you..
Following are the 5 things we need urgently:
- Cotton cloth and Bed sheets for making MY Pads (targeting 6,00,000 units this year)
- Woolens for the neglected disaster of winter (for thousands of winter kits for upcoming winter)
- School material including stationary, toys, school bags, shoes, regional language books, notebooks. (for lakhs of school Kits in thousands of small village schools across India, especially flood hit schools)
- Sarees and children clothing;
- Dry ration and tarpaulins for flood hit regions.
