Leap Foundation is a non-profit organisation to support the cause of Uttarakand. Leap Foundation was conceived by Mr. Anurag Sangal, a noted entrepreneur and educationist from Uttarakhand.
The objective of the organisation is to deliver direct benefit to the local survivors of the calamity through its livelihood, health and education programmes. Please visit the website www.leapfoundation.in for details. 
We are bringing together architects, waste management and ecology experts to rebuild villages. Organic food experts to train the local people, so that we may generate jobs locally too. Talking to E-education companies. 
Peter Rodriguez, World Chief of school feeding and Chronic hunger at UN, has agreed to help us in his personal capacity. Ernst and Young has shown it's willingness to support us. Trying to create understanding between different foundations, because it's a mammoth task and no single organisation will reach anywhere solely on it's own. Almost 200 villages need to be relocated and many more need rehabilitation.
Our team of mountaineers led by one of our Board members Mr. Ajay Kandari, has already reconnected one village through a cable, pulley and trolley bridge over the river Kaliganga. This bridge is being used by 300-350 people daily now, who were otherwise forced to risk limb and life just to procure supplies for daily needs. Another bridge has been constructed over Mandakini River, connecting Chillond village, benefiting 80-100 families. 
Taking note of our team's excellence, the local BSF Commander has requested us to build a third bridge now.  There's an urgent need for General Practitioners and Gynaecologists on the ground. Through our efforts, NGO Change Givers Mission along with Medical Students Association of India have come forward to organise regular medical camps. Efforts are on to reach out to National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), so that various Government Job schemes may be made available to the deserving candidates.

Mr Vijay Mehtani, the founder of Colorplus, has already promised to train and absorb 150 people into his textile-manufacturing unit.
While we are already reaching out to the disaster affected people with our limited finances, we are equally focussed on raising funds as this will enable us to reach out to more and more deserving families and individuals with our programmes. Leap Foundation, with its humble objective has been able to associate many volunteers who have generously contributed in cash or kind. And we have pledged to keep everything 
absolutely transparent. All contributions and expenses will be updated on our website at regular intervals.

Mr. Akshay Rathi of 'Rathi Group of Cinemas' has provided the foundation immense visibility by providing free of cost advertising in almost 3000 cinema screens, for six months. 

We recently concluded a highly successful fundraiser show United Unplugged Uttarakhand at Manhattan in Gurgaon on the 19th of July.  More than 80 artists participated in the show and the show had 700+ attendees. This was the fastest selling show online, and the biggest ever line-up of artists in a pub.

There are around 3,400,000 NGO's in our country. Every second day, almost all of us receive a call for help. Most of us can, and want to help.  But the dilemma we all face is - will my help reach the person in need?  I wanted to get involved directly. At a time when all the agencies were talking about 'relief', I came across this appeal, which spoke about rehabilitation. Not just building temporary shelters, but rebuilding 
I was tired of sitting in my drawing room and cursing the system. I read the appeal, sent my contribution and spoke to Mr Anurag Sangal on the morning of June the 30th. I was convinced with his vision. It was time to act.  I got associated with the organisation and have taken the onus of raising funds for the programs. As of now I am on the Board of Governors of the foundation and an active campaigner.
