Charity in India via Milaap.org: 100% of your contribution comes back to you!
India is a country with a population of 1.2 Billion where one in three people live below the poverty line. Many charity organizations in India and abroad have been working for years to help improve the situation of the poor in India, through contributions in cash and kind. Milaap.org adds yet another dimension to charity in India.
Contributions towards causes like clean water, education, sanitation and energy are given out as loans, rather than a donation. This means that 100% of the contributions are repaid by the beneficiary once the purpose is served. This way, the same amount of money can be used to fund another family in need.
