GOONJ is a unique initiative providing clothes and other basic needs to millions of people - on the roads, in the remote areas and right across
GOONJ's School to School program aims to support thousands of deprived children of rural and slum schools by turning unneeded items from better off urban schools into resources for them. Our focus is on sensitising urban students and their parents to the needs of their counterparts in the remote villages. Each year many urban school children get a new set of uniforms, shoes, stationery, lunch boxes etc. GOONJ helps channel materials like old books, uniforms, shoes, school bags into the rural schools. Over 35,000 children will benefit through this program in the first phase.
Intrepid travellers can support GOONJ by donating: unwanted clean old or new clothing, woollens, shoes, bed sheets, blankets, utensils, school items, school bags, notebooks, pencils, pens, water bottles, lunch boxes, uniforms, toys, children story books, non-perishable foods, newspapers, one side used paper, magazines and cash donations. These can be donated at our collection point in New Delhi
You can also buy our hand made products, made from recycled/waste paper and cloth. Your support also helps us create awareness among more and more people across
