Description
(from Freebase)
GOONJ is a unique resource mobilization initiative providing clothes and other basic amenities to millions in the far-flung villages by turning one’s wastage into a resource for another. Initiated in 1998 with just 67 clothes, we now send out over 40,000 kgs of material every month. A force of over 300 volunteers, GOONJ is implementing its various initiatives through over 150 grassroot organisations, panchayats, Ashoka fellows & social activists in parts of 21 states of the country. GOONJ has recently been awarded the 'Indian NGO of the year' award for its governance and practices. GOONJ has been distributing clothes and other basic material to the poor people in the most far flung parts of India. It has been reaching school material to resource starved village schools and has also been distributing sanitary napkins to the rural population of India.
