Celebrate Joy of Giving Week India's "festival of giving" with Green Yatra.

The Joy of Giving Week is India's "festival of giving"! Launched in 2009, the festival is celebrated every year, in the week including Gandhi Jayanti, i.e., October 2-8, and brings together Indians from all walks of life, to celebrate "giving".
From auto drivers to CEOs, school children to celebrities, homemakers to opinion leaders, millions of people give their time, money, resources or skills back to society- by creating or participating in "events" of their choice. For more detail kindly visit:www.joyofgivingweek.org

We are growing rapidly with our important and much needed projects: Green Youth Green Mumbai, Plant a Tree, Plant a New Life…..We will do it for You, Zaroorat - A Need, Go GREEN Kids, Go GREEN Ganesha.  Soon we are starting a free specialized medical camps round the year and free school dropouts rehabilitation center. Our main roadblock, we are facing is the financial obstacle because until now Green Yatra’s projects have been funded mostly by the personal savings and contributions of founder members.
