International & UK registered charity Go Dharmic- www.godharmic.com
, recruits 300 champions, across the globe from UK to USA to India, united to raise £1M in 36 hours, March 6th-7th, to further their 19 ‘UN sustainable development’ social & environmental campaigns.
Building communities of the future is not a vision for Go Dharmic but an on-going reality through the people they help every day in real time.
Eddie, in Northampton, UK, a beneficiary of Go Dharmic’s Feeding Campaign in the U.K., says: “Up until three years ago, I was serving other people on the streets. I never thought it would be me, but today, I had people (of Go Dharmic) serving me, and they gave it with love. Without these people, we’d be lost.”
“Respect to Go Dharmic, who are feeding people! These are the people we need so much over the Christmas period, and if these kind people are doing this over this period, bless them. I’ve got to say THANK YOU. You’re doing a great job!” (Anonymous beneficiary, UK Feeding Program)
Re-shaping children futures, the charity has ‘tech for good’ programs in alliance with digital learning provider, Klik2learn, in Scotland. Children, in rural areas of India, were greatly impacted by the aftermath of the Covid pandemic lockdowns and had fallen behind in their studies.
Utilising mobile phones, Journey 2 Basic Skills, gives basic literacy and numeracy skills, and gives new meaning to refreshing the curriculum. Principal of Rantanpur Middle School, India, Mahesh Chaudhari says: “Klik2learn and Go Dharmic are trying to benefit the students by helping them improve their English language skills- especially those students who earlier were very poor in the subject. In the course of these 3-4 months, students will learn the basics of English (such as how to write, speak and pronounce easily). I really wish that this Kilk2learn and Go Dharmic initiative could be applied all around the world in every school to benefit more students!”
During the second deadly wave of Covid-19, many elderly, families and most vulnerable were not able to access medicine, food, water, or oxygen. Through their partnership with Uber, India, Go Dharmic, …”helped people who were jobless-those who found difficulty arranging food, for their families. I have driven their volunteers to deliver to the homeless and those in need at these crucial points….they help those in critical medical condition and in need of immediate assistance”- Nandan Singh, Uber Driver, Delhi, India

the community of the future”– Hanuman Dass, Founder & Chairman Go Dharmic
