Believing firmly in giving back to the society what is earned from it, the philanthropist Mr. Sanjay Ghodawat has been donating generously for diverse social causes both personally and through charitable trusts. Today when the world is facing huge impact of pandemic, the chairman of Sanjay Ghodawat Group – Hon. Sanjay Ghodawat ji initiated a movement which was the high time need – ÂTribal Families Covid Support DriveÂ.
Through this drive, they are supporting tribal families by building tribal marts where 100-150 tribal families reside in different tribal areas of India. The same concept has been supported in 10 states and 2 UT with several corporates and NGOÂs in order to become a support system for the people in need.
WHAT IS THE TRIBAL MART INITIATIVE?
United first aims at providing a platform for the tribal communities to comfort their issues of traveling for purchasing basic needs of livelihood at their doorstep by building a tribal mart. The products of the Mart will be provided non financially by the local Organization or NGO associated with us with constructing small mart facilities too initially. We will identify the concerned authority who can repeat the cycle of the Mart by selling the product with the minimal cost confirmed by local authorities and repeat the cycle so that it becomes a permanent asset for the tribal and also local employment can be increased through this mart.
WHY IS THIS INITIATIVE IMPORTANT?
The main advantage of a tribal mart will be that the traveling problems for purchasing basic necessities and needs will be solved. The tribal mart project will be the first initiative towards Atmanirbhar (self-dependent) Tribal. Employment can be increased and facilities of local needs will be completed. This initiative is an idealistic example of Goal 11: building sustainable cities and communities. Most importantly, it is a cost-effective and financially feasible model. Through this initiative, the development of rural towns will be initiated.
In the activity of Tribal Mart, Many world peace ambassadors, ministers and social activist are joining and supporting the cause. This is the first initiative of one of its kind in India. Founder of United First, Sajan Shah who is a youngest motivational speaker of India says, more visionary leaders like Sanjay Ghodawat ji are in need so that social responsibilities are transformed into sustainable social responsibilities.
India will witness more creative social execution this year with the support of Sanjay Ghodawat Foundation
