What We Do

We raise funds for NGOs working for animal welfare, in India.

Why We Do It

This idea stems partly from the belief that NGOs doing actual work on ground are often unable to raise charity due to resource and bandwidth constraints, limited networks and other reasons.
Not to take anything away from what they do AT ALL, we only want to help them do more of the brilliant work they do on ground, by leveraging our (perceived) talents to raise money. In that light we see ourselves not directly involved with the on ground work, but more as facilitators of the same.
