Want to get involved?

We appreciate your concern, association and time more than anything else. We will encourage you to get involved personally to maximize your satisfaction and make the process transparent. You can join us at multiple levels depending upon your choice.

 

1.      We get a lot of ideas. You can share yours as well by contacting us and gaining from our experience. We implement from such a pool of ideas.

2.      Some people want to contribute money. We can definitely use more resources but not at the cost of giving up our freedom to choose only the best, implementable ideas, backed by data. If you are fine, please do by all means.

3.      The best way to get involved is by spending time with us in one of our regular activities. The no-brainer is our regular blanket distribution in winters, and cloth (saree) distribution in summers. The table on the right shows the breakup of the approximate costs. We have been doing it for 5+ years (see details on projects page) and the process is streamlined.

4.      You may also contribute to provide scholarships, possibly in the name(s) of your loved ones, to deserving children, especially girl students from poor and rural backgrounds, on merit–cum-need basis. It may cost an annual cost of approx.Rs.9, 000/-(equivalent US$200) per child, covering for tuition-fees, books, supplies etc. The name, photograph and academic-progress through annual-progress-card shall be shared with the donor.

5.      We are always open for bigger projects that can be discussed on case-by-case basis.

Tell me again, why work with Action for Peace, Prosperity and Liberty (APPL) Trust?

Action for Peace, Prosperity and Liberty (APPL) Trust is a not-for-profit public charitable trust set up in April 2006 to undertake developmental activities and to serve and empower the un-privileged. APPL is registered under Indian Trusts Act 1882 and also with the Govt. of India, Planning Commission and with Finance Ministry under Section 12 A A (1)(b)(i) of Income Tax Act 1961.Donations to APPL are exempted under section 80(G) of Income Tax Act 1961.

 

We have operated for 5 years and counting (since 2006-) with private funds. We have the infrastructure and will to identify the actual needy and channelize the resources in a transparent manner. More details on our mission are here. Regardless of whom you work with (and hopefully with APPL), do translate your concern to action.


Why APPL?
