Share my Dabba

Share my Dabba was a food distribution initiative supported by McCann Worldgroup and run in collaboration with the Dabbawala Foundation in Mumbai. The idea was simple- to create a self- sustaining long term system where un eaten good quality food can reach street children of that location. The NGO was dedicated to bring things in process and ensuring that the kids got one full meal each day. Our aim was to not run it life - long but to establish it as system for the long run.

Spread Some Warmth

On the streets of Delhi, every year people actually die of the cold. The winter is harsh and they have no where to shelter or are not equipped. Most of the time these are interim labourers living in Delhi till construction of their project is over. They live under fly overs or road sides with minimal shelter and clothes. Our NGO collects clothes each winter and distributes them.

Supporting Social Causes

Apart from the regular campaigns the NGO has also supported many causes over the years and contributed to positive social change. Over the years we have supported groups that were actively doing work towards social change.
