If you are like some people we know that is looking for meaningful ways to spend time and are looking to volunteer as an option, Rang De is an ideal destination! You can count on your volunteering work to be memorable and meaningful and be rewarded by the knowledge that your work makes a difference.

Some of our social investors have increasingly become involved in Rang De initiatives that we have begun to form “Rang De Chapters” in different cities.Our Chapters are comprised of dedicated volunteers who promote public awareness of micro finance and also serve as a local resource to Rang De partners and benefactors. The Chapters are local action committees formed by social investors and individuals who participate in awareness campaigns, educational programs, fundraising and advocating on behalf of Rang De. Since Rang De is truly a “grass roots” organization, we truly rely on the efforts of the volunteer chapters throughout the country to help us reach out to our beneficiaries and make dreams come true!

With the assistance of the Chapters, we intend harnessing the creativity of social investors and individuals and thereby reach out and impact more entrepreneurs in rural India.

We have active Chapters in a few cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Pune. (The Mumbai and The Pune Chapter have already been active with a few assignments — Look at our previous blog entry for details) We also have begun working in other cities like Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Chennai. A few of our Chapters will also be based out of Dallas, Singapore, New Jersey, San Francisco and Philadelphia.

So sign up as a volunteer! We are always looking for new additions to our family of socially responsible individuals!
