The gap between the donor and the receiver keeps widening and traditional methods are making it worse.Yogdaan is an initiative to address the shortcomings of the traditional methods of giving, and draws the two closer. It also gives the donors a platform to reach out to the intended recipients.
Beyond basic needs
People with lower-income or the underprivileged may prefer buying second-hand goods (perfectly good ones and in usable conditions) offered at minimal prices. Yogdaan looks beyond the much-needed food and shelter, it focuses on the step to redefine the meaning of sharing and present dignified living.
Besides taking affordability out of the equation, the initiative provides beneficiaries with a chance to manage his/her basic needs and empower the social esteem. Most of these desires are fairly apparent, but are not addressed due to certain monetary constraints.
The experience of the “Yogdaan store” is somewhat like shopping at a supermarket. Convenience is a key factor with specific days for specific items.the It is important for the recipients to register beforehand to avail the benefit of the services.
