Through the power of digital, Efforts for Good or efg, a community-funding platform intends to direct the innate goodness in people towards causes that can leave a lasting impact. They work on long-term projects that focus on sustainability instead of short-term goals that treat the symptoms.
The projects that efg onboards are carried out and implemented by hand-picked specialised non-profits and the projects completed are considered successful only if they are self-sustaining. efg believes that to solve some of the world's most complex problems, we need to start soon and work towards a world where philanthropy isn't an afterthought; it is part of one's daily lifestyle.
In a world hurtling towards digitisation, we see many aspects of society altering accordingly. Since this is the future we are heading towards, we decided to adapt sooner rather than later. The Digital India Campaign, founded in 2015, has been working towards improving online infrastructure in and around India. This has led to connectivity in parts of the country that would've otherwise never seen it.
The digitisation of India has made daily life easier, including paying bills, filing taxes and other government procedures that would have taken a long time. Along with this, we saw philanthropy flourish through various crowdfunding platforms. The World Giving Index 2021, reported a drastic jump in India's position from the 82nd to 14th spot. The pandemic saw 61% of Indians helping strangers, with 36% of Indians granting money to support.
Fueled by interconnectivity and accessibility, along with your help, efg believes they have found a solution to a better tomorrow. Join Efforts for Good and be a part of their journey towards an India where everyone can afford a better life, has a home and are well fed.
