Established more than 20 years ago, Goonj has a team of more than 1000 people working in 27 states in India. Prior to the pandemic, they have worked on taking all types of unused materials from urban Indian communities to remote rural villages in India, helping to clothe and home those in need.
Our country is facing the most serious health crisis in decades and we have a responsibility to give something back to the communities and support the charities who’re working across the country day and night. These unsung heroes, like the team members at Goonj, deserve our thanks and gratitude. We are proud to provide this financial contribution to help them procure and distribute vital resources and services to those who need it most.
