www.karmayog.org is a free platform for the Indian nonprofit sector, & for civic issues in Mumbai.
Nonprofits can tell about themselves & their needs via their own automatic free permanent 'website'. NGOs can display their profiles, events & job vacancies & ask for volunteers, materials, services, funds.
Citizens & corporates can list the availability of their time, talent, materials, services, money, & indicate their interest in particular types of projects & nonprofits. Karmayog lists 2000+ nonprofits in Mumbai & 3000+ in the rest of India.
You can also share your work, ideas, concerns via a discussion group of 4300+ members.
Karmayog is the Convenor of the NGO Council. One objective is to collaborate with BMC on civic issues e.g. a BMC-NGO committee has been set up for cleanliness issues in Mumbai.
Do support the carefully selected "Nonprofit-of-the-Month".
Vinay Somani - overall.
Our reasons and beliefs:
A desire to understand the concept of Karmayog as per the Bhagavad Gita led Vinay Somani to begin www.karmayog.com on 25th June 2004. Karmayog is, however, not a site on spirituality.
All of us have the ability and desire to help others. The problem is how to find who we can support or how to enable them to find us.
Nonprofits are doing fantastic work and even a little support can multiply their effectiveness. The problem for them too is how to find those who can help.
All these led to the idea of this website in which we could use our experience on the internet gained from our main activity - www.findstone.com - a building stone industry site.
www.karmayog.com is a free platform for the Indian nonprofit sector.
- get a free permanent web presence of the type www.karmayog.com/ngoname/ which they can use on their letterhead, etc.
- ask for volunteers, advisors, employees, materials, services, sponsors, donors
- publicise events to 15000+ people
- get support for any event, brochure, newsletter, souvenir
- share their work, ideas, concerns with a 3000+ member yahoo group
Volunteers, Mentors, Corporates, Service Providers can list the availability of their time, talent, materials, services, money, and indicate their interest in particular types of projects & nonprofits, NGOs, charities, educational institutions, medical establishments, etc.
Karmayog lists 2000+ nonprofits in Mumbai and 3000+ from the rest of India. We get about 1000 page views daily.
Since January 2005, we also carefully profile and select one deserving Mumbai nonprofit as the "Nonprofit-of-the-Month" to enable donors to indentify and directly contribute to NGOs for whom even donations as small as Rs. 100 would have an impact.
Our aims and objectives for the financial year 2005 are to map each NGO sector in Mumbai i.e. to list all the NGOs in each sector along with a brief note on their capacity, activities and services. We will also put together a Resource list for each sector. We hope this would help beneficiaries and their families, volunteers, funding agencies, policy makers, and NGOs themselves to use Karmayog as a starting base for their various initiatives.
Karmayog is a completely free site. We look forward to your active participation and support. We would also appreciate ideas for revenue generation.
We would also very much like to meet you if you are connected with or have an interest in the nonprofit sector.
Thanks and Regards
