We are inviting you to participate for Goonj’s ‘Dil ki Suno, Kuch Karo’ campaign during ‘Daan Utsav’. ‘Dil ki Suno,Kuch Karo’ is our clarion call during Daan Utsav to stand for our fellow citizens especially children in villages and missed out communities (sex workers, transgender, differently-abled, HIV+ people, leprosy afflicted etc). Two years on, as children attend classes online, the children in villages may not even recollect what their classrooms look like, or remember how to read and write. Still, traditional textbooks, notebooks, pencils are their key resources for learning. While the missed-out communities who already survive on the edge of the society, have been pushed away further and are struggling to survive. During the pandemic phase, Goonj has been supporting the communities with the basics.
With this situation ringing a constant bell in our minds, we would like to invite you to bring joy to the lives of many by fulfilling the growing monetary and material resource need. Join us to be a part of this Giving Festival. More details on this link: https://goonj.org/joy-of-giving-week-2021/
