Ideas to Invest In

Indians are not really very well known for philanthropy. This perception is changing, true. But still we are yet to reach a position where we can say that we donate money for causes we believe in. Most of the social or other work is either funded by the Government or by NGOs which almost entirely gets funds from other countries!

There are plenty of crowdsourcing websites that I checked over the week and this is the one that I would like you to focus on - if you wish to do something to make a change.


Rangde - This website helps you finance rural and other micro-projects that help people get started. The investment required is very little in fact - you can even donate as little as Rs. 100!

If you wish to make some change and help someone directly and quickly you can do that here. Check the projects that are ongoing and you can help. You can even start with something close to where you live - maybe you can see your contribution help someone.

Another part is that - the money you give is actually a soft loan. That is, after the project is completed and becomes profitable you get your money back - with interest! So if you had doubts over the point of it all, this is your chance. At least start with something like this. Many people need the money you can spend in a day's worth of luxury more than you do.

You can also think about working with them. They pay too.
