If you are an NGO needing volunteers, click here to fill form

  I would appreciate if you would volunteer for any of the following to increase and improve the info on

We would deeply appreciate your help in the following ways:

  1. Send a short email about to all your friends. An example -
    " Hi, let's put our normally-wasted time to good use - do some volunteering or mentoring for non-profits via which puts Mumbai NGOs and volunteers together. One can help from home too. Give me a call to discuss. "

  2. Organize a 20-30 minute talk for us. We will attend along with an NGO (of your choice) and a volunteer. We will explain about We will not be pushy and shall not seek donations but we would expect a donation of atleast Rs. 5000 for the NGO.

  3. Help to build a Library of Articles and Links which can be useful for any NGO worldwide. So please surf the net and email us info preferably in the following format:
  4. Category/ Topic Descriptive Phrase URL / website page link
    e.g. Children

    The categories / topics can cover any topic close to your heart e.g. Fund-Raising, NGO newsletters, non-profit publications, etc.
    Or just email us any info that you already have.

  5. Email us contact lists of non-profits e.g. the various Rotaries, Rotaracts, Lions, Jaycees, municipal schools, charities, temples, NGOs, etc. in Mumbai. A phone number and contact name would be appreciated. We would like to add these in the list of NGOs in

  6. Give us suggestions for improving our home page, forms, lists pages, etc. Ideas to cover ease of understanding, ease of usage, better visual appeal, tone of voice, etc. would be appreciated.

  7. Jokes, quotations, poems, list of songs, etc. which cover volunteering, helping, etc. would be appreciated. Please surf the net and email us. Some themes? - uplifting, meaning of life, meaninglessness of life, deeper purpose, perseverance, courage, etc.

  8. If you are involved with a non-profit, we would like to talk to you / meet you.
    1:30 - 3:00 pm is the best time.
    6:00 - 8:00 pm is the best time to meet over a walk on Marine Drive.
    We would like to understand your organization better to see how to help you effectively through our large network of personal contacts.

  9. Interview NGOs in your area or in the category of your interest. The basic idea is to prepare a note on an NGO which makes it easy for people to have a better understanding of the NGO, it's activities, etc. I have a general set of questions and points. Writing skills are not needed. The note can be structured as in or unstructured such as a magazine article.  
  10. Update NGO lists of different categories which are in . Work involved would be to surf the net and to phone ngo's.

  11. NGOs and volunteers have lots of heart-warming, touching, moving, inspiring stories. We need someone who can write articles based on these for circulation to various publications to inspire others.

  12. Do help in whatever way you can. Thanks. Vinay 

All the work would be finally displayed so as to be accessible free of charge to anyone.
There is no time deadline for whatever work you take up.
We can pay nominal amounts esp. to cover all expenses.
Please email or phone me to discuss further.


The lists of ngo's in needs to be updated. The only 2 lists which are fairly up-to-date are orphanages and the animal welfare ones.
If you can volunteer to update the lists by phoning ngo's as well searching for them on the net, do send me an email in . We will then discuss the format for whichever category you are interested in.
One category will take about a week of 1-2 hours of surfing / phoning a day. In our experience, emailing doesn't yield results as most ngo's are fairly unresponsive to such emails (due to lack of time, lack of access, other priorities, etc.)


We would appreciate if someone would volunteer to search articles for us on the internet.
We will pay Rs. 2 per article. 
We will need the article, it's url, etc. to be emailed to us.

We will inform about the type of articles needed -- typically from daily newspapers and also for specific subjects which we are focusing on at that moment e.g. hearing challenged, physically challenged.

Articles greatly help the beneficiaries and their families, NGOs, researchers, government policy making bodies, etc. We have found that all of these have woefully inadequate information both in breadth and depth.

If you are willing, please contact.


  There seem to be a lot of events in the coming week as circulated among the various yahoogroup messages.

If you can attend any of the programs on Karmayog's behalf, do let us know, as there is certain info that we like to get from each such program.

• We get many emails daily e.g. from those needing volunteers, materials, services, funds, etc. and also from those willing to provide such support.
We need this data via the various forms that are already on our home page.
We would like a volunteer who can put this data into the form i.e.
- we will forward the emails every day to the volunteer
- the volunteer has to copy-paste the data in the emails into the relevant fields in the form that same night.
Some data may have to be re-worded to fit the field in the form. So the skill-set needed is good grammatical English, common-sense, willingness to type diligently i.e. capitals where needed, etc. A cable net connection would be preferred to ensure that work is done in a timely manner.
We will pay Rs. 2 per form.
When data is put into a form, it can be put more easily on the website by the software itself. The data is also available in a very searchable and user-friendly format. This helps both the person who sent the email and those who want to be involved with such a person.
If you are willing, please contact me.

We would like to map the capacity and capability of each NGO sector in Mumbai. We began with the hearing-challenged. We tried to obtain info about every school and every NGO. We then visited them to profile them so as to put up meaningful data on the net which could benefit beneficiaries and their families, schools, ngo's, Rotary clubs, service providers, etc. both in and outside Mumbai.

After each visit, we realised that we missed out on some questions that we should have asked i.e. we could not figure out a proper checklist of questions from the beginning itself. So the effectiveness of the data that we have been able to put up is much lesser than what it could have been.
Also, even at the end of this month-long exercise, I realised that we do not have a good overview of the sector.
So I think it would be better if we can get guidance and support from someone in an ngo in each sector who has a good broad and deep understanding of the sector.
I would have liked to donate to the ngo in return for the time the person would be putting in but I don't think that our level of possible donation would be adequate to make that a worthwhile reason to guide us.
So I would appreciate being contacted only by those who really like the Karmayog concept and who would be willing and able to spare adequate time over the phone and for a review meeting every 2-3 months.

• NGOs have been listed by their location in Mumbai in  .

We would like certain more data about each and would thus appreciate if you
can volunteer to visit all the NGOs which are in any area convenient to you.

You can do so at your own pace.

If interested, Contact 22940109 (For enquiries between 2 to 3 pm).
  We would greatly appreciate if someone can take the trouble to email news pertaining to NGOs which are covered by newspapers.
We need the headline, date, the article itself, and the url of the article.
Pl email to . Pl send each news item individually in the body of the email itself and not as an attachment.
Some news websites are and .
We would prefer Mumbai or national level news.
We are also willing to pay a nominal amount. Contact 22940109 (For enquiries between 2 to 3 pm)

• IAHV is an organization that is conducting volunteer work for the Mumbai Flood victims in Agarpada, Vakola and Kalina districts of Mumbai. They are primarily working in a slum that houses nearly 20,000 shanties accommodating over 200,000 people.

The wall that acts as a fence between the slum community and the Mumbai airport broke down on July 26th, 2005 with the force of the
floods and several houses were swamped, washed away and also several people lost their lives.

IAHV is collecting medicines, bed sheets, blankets, grains at a storage center in Vakola.

Volunteers are needed to segregate these items and transport these items to the slums and help in distribution of the same.  Also a
medical camp is being started on Saturday August 6th 2005. 

If you would like to volunteer please contact IAHV and speak to Alpa at 9820334944.

Manav Seva Kendra .




Manav Seva Kendra is a charitable organization which was started with the sole purpose of providing quality Dental care to the common people. To render such services it has tied up with Smile Design Studio and Dr. Jignesh Mehta ; wherein his own private set-up and his credibility will be used for the purpose of Manav Seva Kendra .


Dental Check-up camps are held on 1st and 2nd Sunday's of a given month at Smile Design Studio wherein a person can use the dental services of the private clinic by paying Rs. 20/- per head (Includes Consultation and Check-up). Further treatments as per requirements will be sponsored by Manav Seva Kendra to the tune of 50% of Dr. Jignesh Mehta 's private charges.



Any person with a flare for Marketing, Meeting people, Creating Awareness, having good public relations, or simply has good contacts, or may be has a lot of friends, would be the one we are looking for. Any previous experience would be handy.



Creating awareness about the program by meeting people and explaining the program details to them.

  • Sourcing people who would like to take the benefit of the program.
  • Filling up of check-up cards and forms (only 3 lines).
  • Approaching charitable trust / NGO's / Clubs / Organizations who would like to  

      take up the benefit of the program.

  • Collection of payments from the beneficiaries in cash.
  • Submission of collected payments to Manav Seva in order for the participants

      to be included in the check up program.

  • Submission of Filled up forms to Dr. Jignesh Mehta .
  • We need a minimum of 50 forms or in multiples of 50 there off to be submitted at a given time


Since this is a charitable activity and a social responsibility we are not making any money out of this. But since the volunteers are giving their services we have decided to award compensation by paying them. The compensation would be 25% of the amount collected by the volunteer.

For example a volunteer fills up 100 successful forms and collects Rs. 20/- per head, this would amount to Rs. 2000/- as total collection. The person would be awarded a compensation of Rs. 500/- and so on.

As a part of the organization a volunteer could access the services offered by Manav Seva for himself and his family. 



There are many trusts providing dental treatments at low costs. The problems faced by the beneficiaries are listed as below.

  • Lack of good and modern infrastructure.
  • Normally fresh passed out doctors join such trust for getting more experience.
  • Experienced doctors work with such trusts for their own vested interest.
  • Lack of credibility of the treatments rendered.
  • Patients are not sure of the quality of the treatments offered.
  • No service guarantee.
  • Mostly doctors leave such organization after gaining experience.
  • Doctors unavailable for follow ups after treatments.

• A Request to those who wish to Volunteer with NGOs through Karmayog    It is good to see so many people wanting to volunteer time and energy for socially relevant work of their choice. Karmayog is happy to provide space  for them to explore possibilities to find such work with suitable organisations. However, we have found that some individuals ignore response from NGOs and other groups to their own announcements. Please at least politely inform the responding organisation that they are not interested in working with it for some reason or the other. A few  not bothering to  respond can create a wrong impression for others who are earnest and sincere in their desire to volunteer time and energy. Their credibility is questioned. NGOs and other organisations might think they too are not serious about volunteering.
Do let us also know the following:
- how many ngo's contacted you?
- could you volunteer with any?
- if so, with whom?
- what was wrong with the others?
- your suggestions for ngo's and for karmayog.

The shortage of eyeballs and probably 2 to 3 million people awaiting the transplant of cornea so that they can get the lost vision.  The collection is hardly 10,000 in the whole year all over India.  Accordingly the awaiting list will never end. 


Sir, I have prompted a project and I hope every person take it seriously.  The project is very simple that every person should try and arrange donation of atleast one dead person’s eye to the eye bank in the whole year.  This is possible because everyone of us stays in some society and every society have many flats and many people also live in your neighborhood of you.  You may come across atleast 2 to 3 deaths in one year and what you have to do is that out of these 2 to 3 deaths you have to persuade atleast one person to donate eyes and if that is done the shortage of eye balls in Maharashtra will be over.


Eyes can be removed only after the Death Certificate is made, and only if the relatives/close friends who are present at that time sign the Consent Form.  Eye removal takes just 15 minutes & does not affect the appearance of the face. Removal should be done as early as possible (max. 6 hrs) of death.  Keep the eyes closed. Cover the eyes with cold cloth or ice compress. Avoid water entering the eyes or direct blast of fan on the eyes. Keep the head raised, by putting a pillow under the head.


Sir, it is not difficult if you think that you are helping 2 blind people by doing this to get their vision and this will give you the best result in your life.  By such deed God will bless you in very best manner, as there can be no better donation then this. Please inform us immediately that you have done the projected donation of eye of one man and we will try to honour you with a certificate for this service of good deed rendered to the society. If you have any difficulty to carryout this project you are free to contact me.  We have literature on the procedure and if you want the same please let me know.


Thanking you,



      For EYE DONATION, contact  :   1919  or  2416 – 2929

• As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, WeP Peripherals has initiated rehabilitation efforts in Naluvedapatty, a village 50 kms south of Nagapattinam - one of the areas affected adversely by Tsunami last year. Some of our rehabilitation and social development activities include distributing nets to localites who lost these because of the tsunami, construction of toilets (especially for female students, as lack of separate toilet facilities result in female student dropouts), enhancing the quality of education in schools, de-siltation of agricultural lands rendered uncultivable due to salt deposition after the tsunami and construction of essential facilities in their schools.

We are looking for volunteers to help us in our endeavor  to enhance the quality of education in the schools. The volunteers would be required to visit Naluvadapathy and spend a period of two weeks teaching or coaching rural school students in their primary classes in subjects like English and activity based subjects like General

This would be an extremely rewarding experience personally for the individual, apart from being an opportunity of being an ambassador for WeP - the organization we have decided to call our own. I would request you all to consider volunteering for this activity which we believe is a small but effective step towards imparting effective education for children in rural schools.

The first batch of volunteers would be sent to the site in the last week of August or early September.

All interested could send me their confirmations through email at

• For those of you who want to volunteer at Pratham (,
these are a few activities that I thought of.  I have kept in mind the time factor for volunteers so there might be few things that are time intensive like evaluation of a project etc and others involve minimal
time e.g. weekend activity with children.

Please feel free if you want the activities in detail.
1.      Read to me Saturdays: Where the volunteers could read stories to the children.
2.      Art and Craft day: The volunteers can teach a special craft to the children. It could be small thing they know, kite making, flower making, book making, etc. It will be better if it is a low cost item.
3.      Spread the word day: It is a day decided by every one to talk about Pratham and its activities to one more person and ask them to join our guest list.
4.      Recommendation day: The volunteer is supposed to visit Pratham classes and leave a sealed note at the zonal office about his/her views about what he saw and what recommendations he/she has.
5.      Write a letter day: The volunteers describe what they saw in our classes. It has to be a short note and will be put up on the Pratham website.
6.      Write stories: Pratham is always in need of stories. Pratham Books could publish the stories with an acknowledgement to you J
7.      Expertise help: Pratham is always in need of people who could
make use of their professional skill in the organisation e.g.
database management, help with PR etc.
8.      Evaluators: We are always in need of external program evaluators who could evaluate a project or a class overtime to present to us their views. This helps us to better our programs and
gives the volunteers a good field experience.
9.      Forming an active like minded group: We could start with various activities to promote Pratham's work and its intensions. It will be a good base to exchange ideas amongst the group.

PS: These are only a few activity's that I could think of based on my
experience, but Pratham caters to a wide variety of backgrounds. I am
an economist by training and am a full time volunteer with Pratham.
There are Hotel management graduates, computer graduates, MBA's  who
work at Pratham also.
