Real Givers, Real Stories

Abhishek Mundra from ICICI Bank shares "The belief that one's money gets valued and gets utilised perfectly to the last penny made me donate through GiveIndia. Everyone likes to contribute but lack of proper channel compounded with the lack of reliability and transparency provided by the organisation takes the contributing individual to the back seat. GiveIndia provides a proper feedback with minute details even for a small sum.
GiveIndia ensures personalised responses to donors and ensures that the donors become a part of their greater family towards contribution

Cause of the month: Disability

Information, though conservative, shows that there are 70 million disabled people in India. One in every ten children or 3% of the country's total child population also falls in this category.
The government itself admits that of the total disabled population, only 2% are educated and 1% employed. No effort or priority is being made to give them a better world - a small gift of a hearing aid, wheelchair or Braille kit will make a difference.
Here is your chance to make a difference to someone's life:
Provide a very poor family with a wooden cot»
Sunday Medical Camp for 100 people»
Sponsor a youth's computer training»
