Thanks for sharing! For this one we’re focusing on climate change and related efforts, but these need help too. Request folks to check this out and pitch in as they can.

Hello @sameershisodia Sir,
Wanted to check if an NGO currently in its registration process (however, existent for 6 months) could apply for the donation here?

Please do share. Please also share their track record.

Dear @sameershisodia sir, i would like to nominate Mr. Dusharla Satyanarayana from Raghava Puram vlg, suryapet, telangana. He has converted his 70 acre farm land into forest that became habitat thousands of species. He badly needs funds to maintain the forest. It will be really helpful if we can provide some financial assistance to him.

This has ended. We’ll reach out to the orgs in the top 10 soon. It was wonderful to learn about so many great organizations and people doing meaningful, impactful work on the ground. We will be going through all the suggestions that this process has thrown up for considering engaging with, and reach out over time - the idea is to have all the good ideas, solutions that have worked in various contexts so others can borrow from them and start solving problems around them.

Thanks for participating, folks, and let’s change how we live on this planet!


So who all did you guys finally reach out to? Thanks
