Know About our Volunteer Projects

In wake of COVID outbreak Face Masks are no longer a matter of choice, but there is a massive population in our country which is not privileged to be spending on such protective gears even during such dangerous times.

While the government is doing their bit, we must extend our support to this cause.

Goal of the fundraiser

This Fundraiser aims to provide 2000 Face Mask (reusable/washable) to school kids whose academic session would be resuming from July-August. These kids are from humble background, living and studying in the village (Garhi Chaukhandi) in Noida, U.P. 

There are two schools [Govt. Primary School (500) + Shree Krishna Inter College (1500)], where we are planning to distribute the masks.

Support Local Community 

This initiative will provide employment to many women in villages. Mostly located in Rewari and Roorkee. The masks for donation will be sourced from these groups.
