One drawback of working in an NGO/social sector is that you tend to overthink. A lot. What's the best solution to a certain problem? Is it sustainable? Why does the problem even occur in the first place? And what is the solution to *that* first problem? (repeat)

Basically, our minds (or at least mine is) - and hearts - are in a state of constant chaos. Our default way to engage with the world, its people, and their problems is by mainly thinking, reflecting, and talking (or sometimes ranting) about it. Which is mostly followed by a deep sigh of helplessness and rarely with a sense of hope.

And so when I started observing people on the streets without an umbrella, getting drenched in the rains, and possibly falling sick due to it, I decided to make an active effort to turn the social worker (if I may) in me off. What helped was people like you offering to help when I reached out. Thank you - it means a lot, truly.

The problem: People don't have an umbrella.
The solution: Buy umbrellas and distribute them.
How you can help: Contribute as little as 100 rupees for an umbrella (or more) and/or join us in distributing them.

Simple. Saral. Straightforward.

I will be updating the number of umbrellas purchased as well as the distribution details on this sheet:

In case you spot people outside a railway stations, at a traffic signal, or near your home or office, please let us know and we'll try and organize a distribution drive there.

Sounds good? Let's do this.

With much love and gratitude.
