Program Description

Goonj has an initial target to reach out to about 30,000 families in the next few months which will increase as their operations grow in Kerala and as more and more resources are gathered. To start with, the focus will be on providing relief kits to families and then to run interventions in schools, anganwadis & welfare centers.

To make sure no duplication of effort takes place, the focus is to try and fill the gaps in the areas where others have not reached or where people still need basic relief. One of the major focus is going to be on tribal population.

A typical kit will have a few kg of dry ration, some utensils, tarpaulin, mats, blanket and other essentials like sanitary pads, slippers etc. Clothing will happen as per need and acceptance. Goonj will also be focusing on other states also which are affected this monsoon including parts of karnataka and tamilnadu.

With their expertise in mobilizing material, their cost per relief kit is low. The breakup of fund requirements is as below:

Outreach to 30000 Impacted Families (Including logistics) = 9.00 cr

Institutional needs (Schools, Health centers) = 1.00 cr

Total = 10.00 CR

About : Goonj

Goonj is an award-winning social enterprise working to build a bridge between the cities and villages. They focus on empowering the communities in far-flung villages to solve their own problems. For the last 19 years they have established a culture of mindful giving in urban India. They collect vast stocks of everyday necessities; from clothes to medicines, that would otherwise have been thrown away.

Every year Goonj processes thousands of tons of urban surplus material to run 3000+ development activities across rural India. With the clothes as motivation, people build bridges, dig wells, repair roads and other community building activities. These people don't get material as charity but earn it as a reward for their work.

The work that Goonj does brings attention to essential but often ignored needs of people. Millions of kilograms of donated cloth is turned into sanitary pads, Sujnis, and Aasans, giving livelihood to thousands of people.

Goonj is a mass movement connecting people in the cities and villages of India as equal stakeholders.
