About the Organization : GOONJ (means an echo) is a multi award winning social enterprise working pan India to build an economic bridge between the cities and villages.
Sharing surplus of one’s prosperity to address lack of resources of another, Goonj focuses on enhancing the dignity of and empowering the communities in far flung villages to solve their own problems. Over the last 19 years Goonj has established a culture and mechanism of sustained and mindful giving in urban India for vast stocks of everyday necessities; from clothes to medicines, lying as idle surplus in urban homes.

Every year Goonj deals with more than 3000 tons of urban surplus material to trigger 3500 grassroots development activities across the deep interiors of rural India where people build huge bamboo bridges, dig up wells, do bunding of acres of land, repair roads etc. with cities under-utilized cloth & other old material as their only reward and motivation. The urban underutilized material is thus being used not only to fill the gaps of resources in development work but also to dignify the act of Giving. Now millions of people don’t get material as charity/donation but earn it as reward in lieu of their work. 

Our work is also bringing attention to some basic but ignored needs of the people like menstrual hygiene, annual disasters like winters and the growing menace of waste. As millions of kgs of last shreds of cloth is turned into cloth sanitary pads and Sujnis, Aasans and Green by Goonj products, we bring livelihood to thousands of people and value to what the world considers a waste.

On a systemic level Goonj is a mass movement engaging with the masses in the cities and villages of India, instigating them to get involved in solving their problems as equal stakeholders with all that they have; their wisdom, material and resources.
