Local Action for Fundraising
Grassroots NGOs in India have been doing remarkable work in various fields of social development. Unfortunately, many of these initiatives are unable to sustain themselves due to lack of resources. Smile Foundation extends support to its partner NGOs by helping them undertake “local actions” or fundraising activities involving the civil society for generating resources to enhance their impact. Since 2010, as many as 200 local actions have been conducted by partner NGOs of Smile Foundation.
