#EveryIndianVolunteering is an effort by IWT to engage Indians in volunteering for various causes. Our goal is to see every Indian eventually volunteer for at least 52 hours a year (1 hour a week on average). As part of the effort, we

 

  • Build and engage the ecosystem of organisations engaged in volunteering at scale in India- cutting across nonprofits, civic and citizenship networks, corporates, communities, educational institutions, govt bodies, religious and spiritual organisations, volunteering intermediaries and informal groups. 

  • Help organizations think through and figure out how to recruit volunteers at scale (>500 volunteers each).

  • Design and test pilots in partnership with various organisations, research, learn and share learnings with the ecosystem.

  • Convene interactions and curate learning opportunities for the volunteering ecosystem players. 

  • Where relevant, provide funding to help scale up volunteering work significantly.

INITIATIVES SUPPORTED

 

  • We worked closely with Internshala.com to create a volunteering section on their site that engaged 20,000+ volunteers in 2021-22.
