Empower 50 needy girls in India through education.
The Udayan Shalini Fellowship Programme is a distinctive higher and professional education and personality development programme. It addresses the grim situation of girls' education in India by achieving their overall development via monetary and individual mentoring support.

Currently, we are looking for support for 50 aspiring girls.
School to School - Connect Urban & Rural Children
As per the Annual Survey of Education Report (ASER) survey, India has made impressive progress in school enrollments and the focus is to improve quality. Goonj has found that rural students lack basic supplies (uniforms, pencil, books, a bag etc) while urban students have the same in abundance. This recycling, environment-friendly effort sensitizes and motivates urban students to donate their reusable school material, and acts as the carrot to get village children to school.
