In November 2019, the Trust sponsored the Sansad Clean Air Green Air Marathon, a series of marathon races across Ambedkar Nagar that drew 5000 young men and women, ranging from ages 5 to 21. Our mission was to raise awareness on the environmental and health hazards of crop burning. The awards for the three fastest boys and girls were selected to promote the green mission of the initiative and included an electric bike, a solar inverter, a multi-gear bike, and two bicycles. Support the Marathon in 2020.

During the Covid-19 lockdowns in 2020, we led nation-wide efforts to feed migrant workers and their families. Through the generosity of donors like you, we were able to provide rations and essentials to over 5000 people. We also provided food to low-income families in Ambedkar Nagar during the fasting period of Ramadan. Additionally, we provided support to migrant workers stuck  in the Gulf and Southeast Asia. Continue to support our work to alleviate distress during the Covid-19 pandemic.
