Founded by the Ex- CEO of Give India, DanaMojo is a payment solution platform for NGOs. The team has put together a credible list of more than forty NGOs engaged in critical relief work with the most vulnerable communities across India in this uncertain time.
[ClickPress, Fri May 15 2020] Balai Karmakar, a 60-year-old man, from Kalighat Road in West Bengal, has been unemployed since the beginning of the lockdown. His small cloth business is shut and has nothing except his 10*15 ft. room to live in. With hardly any food supplies, he lost the hope of survival.
Luckily, relief was on the way when one of the NGOs of Kolkata jumped into action to service the area where Karmakar stayed.
Karmakar says, ‘I’ve never been this excited by the sight of rice bags lying in the corner of the NGO’s office wanting to be distributed. Only one thought ran in my head: Aamra baanchbo!’
During this COVID-19 pandemic, the citizens and the NGOs of the country have volunteered in large numbers to help those affected with the lockdown.
Our medical professionals, police, and other central and state front-line workers are doing an excellent job keeping the country safe.
And partnering them on-ground are numerous NGOs that shifted gears almost overnight to help the vulnerable and affected communities such as guest workers, women suffering from domestic abuse, children who need counselling, the elderly, animals, the transgender, those who need HIV medication; providing them with food and sanitation kits, hot meals, direct money transfer, COVID-19 treatment support, and personal protection equipment.
Now with the extended lockdown, there is a huge surge in the number of those who need support, and consequently, the need for funds for these NGOs has now become critical.
Many citizens have donated to their favourite or a popular NGO, or they have learnt about an NGO doing great work via their friends and family and made a contribution. Government trusts have emerged as popular as an option to donate to.
But what about those citizens who are still looking at a cause to champion, those who are looking to support multiple causes or donate to an NGOs working close home.
And while doing, they also want to be absolutely sure that the contributions are reaching the intended NGO.
Finally, there is a solution.
DanaMojo, a payments solution platform for NGOs, has found a way to bridge the gap between these NGOs who need the funds and us, the citizens of the country, who want to ensure that their money is safe and reaches the intended audience.
