School-going children in many government schools are greatly disadvantaged when they go to school. They walk long distances barefoot, they do not have a proper school bag, and they sit on the floor. All this leads to poor attendance, health issues, and a lack of interest in studies (as their sitting posture itself is very uncomfortable).


The Mumbai-based NGO Greensole has developed a unique back-to-school kit that has:-

1. Footwear (No more barefoot walking)

2. Study Mat (Makes it comfortable to sit at school for long hours)

3. School Bag (Ergonomically designed and colorful)

These elements are made from recycled material. For example, the sole from old footwear (which would be burnt or thrown into a landfill) is turned into new footwear. Old clothes are used to make the bags and mats. This is very environmentally friendly. Greensole also provides employment to women at their manufacturing unit.

The back-to-school kit contains a pair of recycled footwear, a soft study mat to sit comfortably on the bare ground and attend classes, and a school bag to carry all their books and stationery. This dramatically changed a student's attitude to school and studies. It improves attendance, focuses at school, and helps them fall in love with education. It also eliminates both foot-related diseases and improves the child's posture, decreases strain on the eyes, and reduces stress on the neck and back.


Upcycling refers to using end-of-life materials to make a new product with added value. That is to say, we re-use a product that is no longer used, or that can no longer be used, and turn it into a useful product.

This type of recycling has a positive impact on the environment since it defers and reduces the amount of waste in a landfill. In addition, the material is not processed like in downcycling, instead, it is cut, folded, molded, etc. into a new product.

My name is Geet. I am 15 years old and a Grade 10 student at Canadian Intl School (CIS), Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Embarking on a heartfelt campaign, I was struck with disbelief upon discovering the harsh realities faced by numerous students hailing from low-income households in Karnataka who are enrolled in government schools. The revelation that a significant number of these young minds lack the most basic school necessities, such as proper footwear and a school bag, was a stark reminder of the inequalities that persist in our society.

For these children, the simple act of sitting on the hard ground to study at school is not just a matter of inconvenience, it's a pressing issue that can have profound consequences on their well-being. The statistics are alarming. A staggering 9 out of 10 students who endure this practice are destined to encounter posture-related problems. This prolonged sitting also takes an indirect toll on their eyesight and jeopardizes their ability to concentrate and engage in effective study sessions. Furthermore, the absence of proper footwear exposes them to a host of foot-related diseases and health complications, further exacerbating their already challenging circumstances.

In response to this pressing need, I have initiated a transformative campaign aimed at providing a lifeline to these students in the form of a back-to-school kit. Priced at a modest INR 900, this kit includes a pair of recycled footwear, a recycled study mat for comfortable seating at school or home, and a recycled school bag for carrying essential books. The impact of this seemingly small investment cannot be overstated – it has the potential to significantly improve the lives of these students, offering them not just tangible resources but also a renewed sense of dignity and hope.

Consider the profound change that a fund of INR 3600 could bring about; it has the power to transform the lives of four students, covering both the cost of the kit and its distribution. By supporting this campaign, you become an integral part of a collective effort to enhance the health, attendance, and academic achievements of these deserving students. Together, let us forge a path towards a brighter future, where every child can step into the classroom with confidence, a smile on their face, and the tools they need to succeed.

Greensole Origins :

As athletes, the founders of Greensole, Shriyans Bhandari, and Ramesh Dhami ran hundreds of kilometers every year. They also ran through at least 3 to 4 pairs of sports shoes every year. The soles were in good condition but the shoe sides tore within months. The duo always wondered if they could find some use for the intact soles of these quality sports shoes. A bit of research led to the idea of refurbishing them into trendy slippers. That brainwave eventually spawned an eco-friendly enterprise that reuses shoe soles and is appropriately named Greensole. Greensole used to previously only recycle shoes but now they also give back-to-school kits to rural students which include upcycled footwear, masks, study mats, and school bags.



Funding for this campaign is eligible for tax breaks as the NGO, Greensole is a registered trust and you can avail of benefits under section 80G of the IT Act. Foreign funding is NOT accepted.


To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from the NGO (this takes between 1 to 3 months usually after the funds are raised and transferred to them) telling me who benefitted from the funding. The details will then be posted in the UPDATES section of my campaign. As soon as I post an update, the platform will send an EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e. to you. Click on the link in the email and you can read about who benefitted. That's transparent, right?

It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online.
