In the race of development we all are too focused on machines i.e. the big and known issues, ignoring the needles, the
most important basic needs!
At GOONJ, our focus is on these needles – With large scale civic participation, it is not only becoming a big people’s
movement for development but is also creating a parallel economy where every work doesn’t have to wait for
money but huge quantities of old re-usable material turns into a valuable resource.
Over the last decade, a parallel economy which is not CASH based but TRASH based, is emerging.

GOONJ has reached parts of 22 states in partnership with over 250 grass-root organizations, Ashoka Fellows, social activists & social movements. Apart from thousands of volunteers all across, GOONJ has a formal team of 200+ people with 12 offices across India. 

GOONJ is a tool to experiment, to innovate some unconventional ideas that gets space in the development process and get each one to think out of the box.. and take some action!
