JOSH – 'Joy of Serving Humanity' is a consortium of spirited, young and likeminded people who aim at making a substantial difference to the underprivileged sections of the society through persistent efforts. The group is an amalgam of individuals coming from diverse professional, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds from all over the globe. The group was initiated leveraging social media technology which has an amazing reach, to connect people who are passionate about serving the society within their financial and time constraints.
JOSH provided an ideal platform for people who want to serve humanity when still young and do not consider retirement a necessary condition for giving back to the society. Since members of the group are in various geographic locations, the group functions by using technology to brainstorm and discuss ideas. Opinions and participation by all group members is always encouraged and all decisions are taken by voting. Unanimous decisions are transformed into actionable plans and implemented effectively by local members.
JOSH raises funds against requirements called out by NGOs and fulfils these requirements. We now feel the need of an online platform to expand this for greater good. This online platform would connect NGOs who have requirements with donors and bring transparency in the process. This platform also helps donors choose who they would like to help based on their personal choice.
We do not raise funds for the requirements which makes it the most trustworthy donation platform. We help YOU donate the materials directly to the beneficiary.
We tell you exactly where your donated item(s) went and you will hear from the recipient through a feedback mechanism.
JOSHConnect is a not for profit platform and the amount you pay would go to donate for the requirement of your choice, as against the average of 60% for the NGO sector and 80-90% by other crowdfunding platforms.
We have reviewed many non-profit organisations across India to identify the key NGOs that meet the JOSHConnect listing criteria. They work for causes ranging from child welfare and education to disability, poverty, and women's empowerment to name a few.
JOSHConnect is managed by this small team of professionals who are associated with big corporates but also want to give back to the society by building this platform.
