The Flagship program, Cloth For Work uses urban material to solve some difficult rural issues to make a difference in the lives of people across India. In FY16, Goonj facilitated 2,315 development activities where communities across 1,140 villages worked on various rural development issues like water, sanitation, agriculture, infrastructure etc. with their own wisdom and resources, and in turn received 3,000 tons of material as their reward.
India accounts for 27% of the world's cervical cancer deaths (72,000 women die every year), twice the world average, due to lack of basic menstrual hygiene. Not Just a Piece of Cloth (NJPC) program addresses the basic need of clothing for the biological cycle of menstruation for women in rural areas and villages.
The School to School program focuses on using discarded but usable school materials from cities to remote and resource starved village schools as an incentive to bring children to attend school. In FY16, Goonj provided school kits to children across 14 states and shoes to 828 villages in India.
Goonj also undertakes disaster relief and rehabilitation work.
