How It Works
So far, we've raised the following for past charities!
Thaakat (translates to "strong") believes in restoring hope to those who have been outcast from society. They work to progress global communities through sustainable education and healthcare development projects. Today, Thaakat has adopted three global villages in which they are helping to make strides for the communities every day. 100% of donations go directly to people and projects in need.
MUSKAAN'S Chosen project: Little Promises
Sierra Leone’s maternal mortality rates are the highest in the world and a third of all infants do not live to see the age of five. Thaakat's goal is to increase child and maternal survival rates by providing free and quality access to healthcare. As a part of the total solution-- health staff, traditional birth assistants and clinic aides work together to improve access to services for common childhood illnesses, safe motherhood, nutrition and immunizations.
District Mugs is a volunteer group that introduces entrepreneurship and business concepts to homeless men and women in Washington, D.C. by teaching them how to design, market, and sell coffee mugs. Participants in the District Mugs program also have the opportunity to earn a small income from the sale of their coffee mugs. They partner with other nonprofit organizations in D.C. to identify homeless persons who might benefit from the program. As a part of their efforts, District Mugs conducts weekly workshops that involve teaching participants basic business skills and providing them with art instruction so they may design their own coffee mugs. They also organize regular pop-ups where participants are able to market and sell their mugs to members of the community..
