IgnitedV (www.ignitedv.com) is a 'volunteer connect' initiative which acts as a new age platform for social contribution.
Started by four IIT Delhi undergraduates in Dec, 2011, we have now grown into a team of 25 people with an aim to connect users with service opportunities & projects, facilitating volunteer work for nonprofits, schools, government agencies, civic groups and businesses.
Our Work is born out of the Realization that:
- There are people who want to support social causes. They are often unaware about the existence of NGOs, their needs and their work
- Absence of authentic information and lack of transparency about the use and impact of their contribution deter people from extending their hand to this sector
- It is high time that the people of India start contributing in this sphere. We want to inculcate the culture of volunteering which is largely absent in the society.
Since the initiative was started:
- Connected 200+ volunteers with 10,000+ man-hours of service contributed towards the non-profit sector
- Successfully organized an educational rural trip to Jhabhua(district Ratlam, M.P.) in association with National Livelihood Resources Institute
- 'Aakaar' - Developing a mentorship panel of 35 college students from diverse branches for career guidance counseling
- Recipient of grants from Google for promotion of the non-profit through the internet
- Formally recognized by a partner NGO in the leading-daily 'The Hindu'
Where would we like to go from here?
- We'd like to expand our organization across India opening up various chapters in different cities, and to do this, we are going to need visibility, funding, expertise & mentor-ship from experienced professionals.
