When I moved to India, I realised that there were so many people who were doing their bit to improve the lives of those less priviledged than us.  I used to do my bit till now by donating to charities, which too is important since everyone needs funds to do their good work.  However, here I see people I know that do more than just donate funds.  They give their time, and are making such a huge difference in the lives of those less fortunate than us.

I too wanted to do something with my free time…help someone in need….make a difference, maybe even for one person.  But I found it difficult to find what types of NGO’s exist, where they are located and in what way could I help them.

Not just that….I also had so many old clothes, toys, books and household stuff that I didn’t need any more.  I gave a lot to my maids, but I still had so much more.  I didn’t know where to give it to…some place where it would be put to good use….where it could be used by the needy…..but where?

I will be writing about such places…that can use your help…..either in terms of funds, time, or donations in kind.  If you know of any such places, please leave a comment or email me. Thanks.
