This is in response to Bloggers social responsibility, an initiative by BlogAdda They have listed around 39 NGOs, and as I believe in giving, I was eager to look at the list. I was pleased to find some I was already associated with. So here are my Sunday picks:
R K Foundation
Activity: The foundation tries to create a bridge between people and non governmental organizations involved in services relating to health care and human services. To begin with, the foundation concentrates in their home state Karnataka. Gradually the foundation would become a part of the local resources mobilization network on various service minded institutions like hospitals, vocational training institutions and others to promote efficient & effective giving.
Support: Clothes for the needy, food for the needy, Education/vocational training/placements/scholarships, Emvironment issues/ renewable energy, Mobility aids & assistive devices, Essential surgeries for children from low socio economic backgrounds
Note: Mid day meal program for 375 school children in 10 schools in various slums in Bangalore.
Courtesy foundation is the link between the child in need, wherever he/ she is in India – and you, wherever you are. Courtesy Foundation therefore uses the concern, money and skills of thousands of individuals towards child development projects that are run by committed organization that strive for child rights. Can donate online here. I’ve been associated with them for the last three years and it is reassuring to know they’re doing a great job.
Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled
Samarthanam supports the visually impaired, disabled and underprivileged to keep in pace with the rest of the society by providing quality education, accommodation, nutritious food, vocational training, placement based rehabilitation and achieve personal independence. You can donate online.
And my favorite:

This is an Girls’ orphanage where they take care of over 85 orphans and destitute girls in the age group of 5 to 20, providing them good food, clothing, health care and education up to Std 10 and vocational training in tailoring, weaving and doll making.Can donate money and provisions.
