If you have old newspapers lying at home or if you are planning to sell them to the kabaadiwala, wait. Instead, donate them to Uday Foundation, an NGO who offers humanitarian support to the homeless. 

If you have old newspapers lying at home or if you are planning to sell them to the kabaadiwala, wait. Instead, donate them to Uday Foundation, an NGO who offers humanitarian support to the homeless. 


The newspapers donated to the foundation are sold to paper mannufacturers and the money received is then used to organise these drives on Wednesdays and Fridays, between 11 am and 1.30 pm.

One plate of food costs the foundation Rs. 15. That cost is covered by selling a load of 1.5 kg newspapers. 

The patients and their families who throng these hospitals for treatment often come from other states and are very poor. Because of their poverty, the underprivileged go hungry to save up on their money and use it toward medical expenses.


Anyone who wishes to donate can either visit their centre at 113A/1, Adchini, Sri Aurobindo Marg or donate on Ketto.org. Volunteers are also welcome who wish to be a part of this initiative.
