Recently we shared a story, about over 800 families who came along with Goonj to “Clean The Himalaya”. In the second phase this year, the campaign involved women mountaineers! Training to become advanced mountaineers to climb Mt. Everest one day, the women-only squad worked with the Goonj team to collect 21 bags of plastic from the base camp area and the village of Dharchula in Uttarakhand. Our volunteers, Ganesh and Kailash took these bags further on a difficult journey of over 80 kilometers to the valley, where these bags were given to local municipal corporations for recycling. The budding mountaineers received winter boots, from Goonj, as a reward for their efforts!
Many parts of India are very cold now, which means a disastrous time for millions, who don’t have much to cover themselves. This is your chance to do something meaningful.. Contribute your woolens and sarees to spread the warmth with Goonj’s ‘#OdhaDoZindagi’ our annual winter campaign..
Your giving could mean so much!
