Charities and Causes

Following are some of the charities and causes I prefer to contribute to. They deal with either education or preserving the environment/wildlife, causes I care about. I try to contribute on the occasion of Yugadi and Deepawali. I am thinking I should make it thrice a year by including Sankranthi. The purpose of writing this post is to, in a way endorse the organizations and express trust in what they do. Hopefully in the long run I will be able to contribute more meaningfully rather than just donating money.

  • Anandwan – This is the organization started by Baba Amte. It is a bit sad that a selfless man like Baba Amte did not get the recognition he deserves.
  • Wikipedia – – Wikipedia is so brilliant and useful that it is worth it to keep it free.
  • Ramakrishna Mission – – Schools and Education institutes run by them are pretty good. I have known a couple of the alumni from these schools, and I have only heard good things about them.
  • Ekal Vidyalaya – It is an organization that provides education in remote and tribal areas. This is a worthy endeavor, and the organization, I think, is linked to the Sangh Parivar.
  • Chengeta Wildlife – by – These people fight poachers responsible for endangering elephants and rhinos in Africa. I have followed the activities and writings of Rory Young for more than a couple of years now, and I have nothing but respect for him. Sometimes they sell branded merchandise to raise funds.
