PROJECT MUMBAI HAS THE SUPPORT A FEW THOUSAND GOOD SAMARITANS WHICH HELPED US BUILD A HYPER LOCAL NETWORK OF VOLUNTEERS ACROSS OVER A HUNDRED LOCATIONS IN MUMBAI, THANE AND PORTIONS OF THE MMR.
Project Mumbai has been blessed to have a large number of dedicated citizen volunteers–our army of Good Samaritans–. which has been catering to the needs of such senior citizens with home cooked food. Close to 2000 citizen volunteers are supporting Project Mumbai from across different suburbs which are now mapped. On an average, we have been getting requests in three digits by the day and which has now trickled to two digits. Each volunteer name is mapped by name, number and geography. We have built a hyper local network through such volunteers.
Our volunteer’s army also helped us keep an ear to the ground to give us a feel of the pain points. Which is also what helped us realise the increasing levels of anxiety in the community, as lock-down continued. That is when we launched our third initiative.
