Our Mission and Vision
Bharosa Foundation is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organisation that focuses on providing clothes and education to needy people residing in India. As the name suggests, we believe in spreading faith and trust among the young minds & their respective families towards humanity. We aim to bridge the gap between benevolent individuals and needy ones who can support each other on all aspects of life.
When one donates, he gets a lot of blessings from the receiver. This exchange of warmth & love in return of any monetary or materialistic contribution by the individual creates a mutually beneficial society. Bharosa wants to convey that people “care”. By establishing an ecosystem which encourages donations, we believe, we can help the marginalised section of the society.
Most educated people are privileged enough to buy new clothes every now and then, but they can’t figure out what to do with their old clothes. We offer them recycling options as doing this will help them clean their cupboards for a beneficial cause and make space for new items. People need to realize that their old and unused clothes can mean a treasure to someone else. We are committed to providing clothes and any other basic amenity to whoever is needy at any hour of the day, more so in winters as winters are a season in which the poor and needy face the most odds. We generally organise our events at popular market places of Gurgaon, India. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion or caste and anyone from any age or social status can join hands to help the poor community with us. Our “donate now” tab is available for those who want to contribute online. Under special circumstances, we also provide doorstep pick-up of items meant for donation form all over Gurgaon. If you spread the name of “Bharosa”, we will be more than happy!
As per recent records, India has a literacy rate of total 74%, out of which males cover 82%. This figure shows us how much we need to educate girl children. Even the higher education enrolment have been cut out at 24% by 2013, after which in recent years, there have been developments of rural education but the quality of government school system has been questioned. At bharosa, we offer education to poor children without any age or caste system in place.
We strongly believe that education is the only light that can help them lead a quality life. More than flow of money, every individual needs a proper path to follow – that which a teacher can show. We have excellent teachers who are actively initiating collective measures to eradicate poverty of the “mind”. Martin Luther King once said, “intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education”. Our goal is to simply impart knowledge & upgrade societal values by offering a friendly exchange of gently used goods and smiles in between donors & receivers.

We must look at an economy which is not focused at cash production but in value creation. Being true patriots, we need to join hands to transform the culture of offering things in our country. Winters don’t kill people, lack of clothes does. Poverty doesn’t affect people’s lives, lack of knowledge does. By initiating a ‘culture of giving’ in the society, we can focus on the dignity of the receiver. Hundreds of people die every year, due to lack of clothes alone, if we talk about food and shelter, the numbers might increase radically.
Why make life complicated? Let’s generate warmth and share at least a little of what we can afford. We waste tons of fast food every day, tap waters remain open, can’t we use these resources to feed others? To shift our clothing luxury mindset to an eco-friendly one? Sure, we can shop but we might also call ourselves responsible by offering our gently used clothes to the needy. In a country, which is pulsing with hunger and death every moment due to lack of food, shelter and clothes, let’s provide some to them. We are focusing on clothes and education apart from other needs of life. Let’s do our bit!
