NeoGrowth recently partnered with Goonj and participated in their used “Clothes Donation Drive.”
Goonj, is a non-prot organization, founded by Mr. Anshu Gupta, winner of the Ramon Magsaysay Award (2015). Goonj is turning the underutilized material of cities into a resource for rural development. It is about turning the age old tradition of using old material as charity and using it for a regular & dignied living. Starting with 67 clothes in 1999,Goonj now deals with over 3000 tonnes of material every year in 22 states across India.
NeoGrowth contributed to the Rahat initiative of Goonj, by organizing used Clothes Donation Drive across its Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune ofces. Donation boxes were placed at the respective ofces and a two week communication program was executed to build awareness for the drive.
NeoGrowth employees showed immense enthusiasm for the drive and came out in large numbers to contribute their used clothes for the initiative. Across these six ofces, 9 boxes of clothes were collected and were later handed over personally by NeoGrowth team to the Goonj Ofce.
These clothes will be used by Goonj as part of its Rahat initiative, through which they provide need based immediate relief material to help in rehabilitation of natural/human disaster hit areas across the country.
NeoGrowth’ s quest of catalysing the societal impact is further enhanced by initiatives like these, which reiterate the belief that a positive change can be brought about in society both by the loans that we give to SMEs to help them grow their business and also by partnering and encouraging initiatives like this used Clothes Donation Drive, which help us give back to the society in a humble manner.
