The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, awards Anshu Gupta, the Social Entrepreneur of the Year
On today’s show we talk to Anshu Gupta, the founder of Goonj, an NGO that has demonstrated how cloth can be a powerful resource for the development of India’s poorest communities.
Goonj channels excess resources, waste in urban households to the impoverished rural and disaster-prone areas.
Sourcing its material at collection camps in urban neighbourhoods and corporate offices, Goonj delivers 1000 tons of material every year through an extensive network of volunteers, schools, corporate houses and NGO partners across India.
