Recent floods across northern Karnataka saw massive destruction affecting the lives of millions of families in 12 districts where the evacuated people returned home to barren lands.
When floods wrecked Shilpa’s ( Name changed) small grocery store in Nagaral,( Bagalkot) in Karnataka, she was already battling the loss of a dear one. Goonj motivated her to set up the store again by providing basic and necessary material under our ‘Vapsi’ initiative.
Goonj’s Vapsi initiative is about reviving the local economy of a flood-hit area by engaging people in local occupations. It is not just about livelihood but also prevents migration. Millions of families are facing similar situations across 8 flood-hit states of India. Your contributions matters: link
