Tamuku: Indian NGOs that you should support
As India continues to face poverty, several non-governmental organizations have made it a goal to help the people of the country in any way possible. Whether it be for the environment or the needy, you’ll see a dedicated NGO doing their work just to make the country a better place.
Here at Tamuku, we want you to be aware of the different NGOs in the country so that you know which programs you can benefit from. Normally we do this by updating you through Whatsapp. But today, we want to share with you some of the NGOs that we believe you need to keep an eye on and support in any way you can.
So, without further ado, here are the best local NGOs that India has today:
Hailing straight from New Delhi, India, Smile Foundation is an organization that is aimed towards making education accessible to the underprivileged. They have been around since 2002 and they’ve reached over 400,000 children as of 2017.
Unfortunately, the situation in the country is that some children are forced to work early in their lives and are forced to quit education just to earn money. With this organization, they’ll give the youth a better life because they’ll be able to have proper education which can set them for their careers in the future.
When an unlikely disaster occurs in the country, you can always count on Goonj to be there to aid the victims. This organization was found way back in 1999 and since then they’ve been providing clothes and other materials to victims of natural calamities.
Aside from that, they also work to improve the sanitation system in the country to lessen the diseases that are usually caused by germs and bacteria such as diarrhoea.
Founded during the late ‘70s, Helpage India is an organization aimed at helping the elderly. Their main goal is to give these people a more comfortable life during their retirement years.
Actions taken by Helpage include:
- Making healthcare more accessible
- Fighting against elder abuse
- Advocates for the needy.
CRY: Children Rights and You
From the name itself, CRY or Children Rights and You fights for the rights of children across the country. They aim to free them from poverty and child labour and give them the proper childhood that they deserve.
CRY was founded back in 1979 by Rippan Kapur and today, they’re one of the most supported non-governmental organizations in the country. This is thanks to their advocacy and their awareness-raising actions.
Care India is one of the oldest organizations in the country. They’ve been around for 68 years and they’ve stood for what they believed in since then which is to empower women of all ages in poor areas. This allows them to have better opportunities in life and be free from oppression.
Actions taken by Care India include making comprehensive health plans, providing education and giving livelihood opportunities.
