GOONJ (means an echo) a multi award winning social enterprise focused to work on ignored basic needs like clothing, sanitary pads for village and slum India while changing the dynamics of giving & receiving with dignity. Using the city’s discard GOONJ is fueling wide spread development work across village India. Over the last 14 years it has built a network of channels from urban to village India, channelising clothes & other household material to reach people in most far flung areas. Turning city’s discard into currency for rural development work, GOONJ has innovatively catalyzed what is threatening to be a environmental disaster & taken the pressure off monetary inputs for wide ranging rural development.
Unfortunately the donations they have received is disgusting. GOONJ has shared this message with photograph on their Official Faceboo Page :
“Goonj wants to send out a message loud and clear that this is not a garbage store.. from rotten pooja material to blood soaked under garments to something which even a kabari won’t touch.. Please stop insulting the dignity of our team and the recipients and the good giving by hundreds of people. It’s time to name and shame people who try to pass any garbage and mess in the name of contribution.. Kindly help spread the word to keep the faith in humanity intact.. it is sad that with good material the quantity of such scrap is also growing !!”
