ZAROORAT - A NEED

"Because your old stuff can be someone's new gift"

Zaroorat - A Need works on a premise that one man’s waste can be another man’s richness. The main objective of the project is to provide the necessary things to millions of poor and needy people who face great hardship and health risk due to lack of proper clothing and other basic things in far-flung areas, urban slums of the country. The project is based on Realize, Reuse, Recycle model.

Impact/Outcome of the Project:

Since inception in 2010, we have collected and distributed millions of old households’ stuff and touched millions of lives across India. To see where your donated stuff is going please visit: www.greenyatra.org/gallery/zaroorat
