Million Meals Mission
Million Meals Mission raises awareness about food insecurity and provides meals to food insecure communities around the world. It is a non-profit organisation that fundraises on behalf of grassroots organisations in India to increase their fundraising efforts and their impact in local communities.
Million Meals Mission aims to achieve a 'lean' model to maximise the impact for each donor. The organisation ensures that donations are used as intended and maintains transparency and impact maximisation as its two core values. To date, MMM has provided 216,000 meals in the four years of its operations, and aims to reach 300,000 by the end of 2021.
A key focus of Million Meals Mission is also educating people about food insecurity, non-profits, and how they can make an impact. In the coming months, the organisation will release blogs and other supplemental content to inform people of food insecurity issues.
Think Wildlife Foundation
Think Wildlife Foundation is an initiative started by a group of students from India, Singapore and Canada who have an innate passion for wildlife.
It is currently raising awareness about our planet’s biodiversity that is being threatened by a host of issues such as deforestation, ocean pollution and poaching. TWF are doing this through their blog, outreach programs and social media channels.
The funds raised by TWF, both in collaboration with wear:change and independently, will be used to start small projects such as tree plantations and plan to adopt animals in reputed rescue centres.
Some of the organisations TWF will support include the Wildlife Trust of India and The People for Animals Wildlife Hospital in Bangalore. WTI run 44 conservation projects including rescue centres for Rhino calves displaced by annual floods in Kaziranga. The PFA Wildlife Hospital has rescued more than 25,000 animals from over 200 species and about 75% of the treated animals are successfully released back into the wild.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded in 1962 by Danny Thomas, strives to “advance cures, and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment”(St. Jude Mission Statement). Furthermore, they ensure that no child is denied treatment on the basis of their religion, race or family’s ability to pay.
In 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) and St. Jude announced a five-year collaboration, aiming to cure at least 60% of children with six of the most common kinds of cancer by 2030. Furthermore, St. Jude helps advanced cancer care, with treatments invented at St. Jude helping push the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80%.
St. Jude is one of the largest pediatric cancer hospitals in the world. Unlike other hospitals, they offer several programs to help provide a child with as normal a childhood as possible, while combating diseases. These programs include housing facilities for patients to live along with their families, food allowance and gift cards, an onsite school, psychosocial help for family of the patient dealing with the diagnosis, concierge services to help with daily tasks, translation services, babysitting, and more.
Donations towards St. Jude help them provide free holistic treatment for patients. This ensures that “all a family should worry about is helping their child live”.
The Period Society
The Period Society (TPS) was founded in 2019 to put a period to the stigma surrounding menstruation. In pursuit of menstrual equity, TPS focuses on menstrual-hygiene related education, awareness and poverty. TPS conducts educational sessions to create a ‘sex and period positive’ society in India’s remote regions, neglected communities, red-light districts etc. Additionally,TPS combats period poverty by providing menstrual-hygiene products to affected communities.
TPS’s mission is to raise awareness surrounding menstruation in regions where menstruation is considered to be a taboo – leading to the use of unhygienic and improper practises and possibly infectious diseases that could otherwise be prevented. We emphasise environmental sustainability across our sessions and strive to make menstruation as environmentally friendly as possible using hygienic, re-usable products like menstrual cups.
TPS has served over a million periods worldwide, reaching out to over 20,000 ‘menstruators’ through their efforts. With a team of over500 members working with our core team and subsidiaries, TPS is proud to be a leader in the fight against menstrual inequity and stigma.

Cahaya Surya Bakti
Cahaya Surya Bakti (CSB) is a registered charity in Johor, Malaysia. It was founded in 2017 with the vision of providing community-based support and assistance to the growing refugee population in Johor, Malaysia. CSB has successfully established 5 schools for refugee children and teenagers located in the areas of Kempas, Kluang, Pekan Nanas, Kota Tinggi, and Muar.
In total, CSB oversees the education of 500 students in Johor with every campus being a recognised learning centre under the UNHCR – United Nations Refugee Agency. The majority of the students are Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, however, their doors are open to all refugee children regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.
At the heart of CSB is its relationship with the refugee community living in Johor, especially the vulnerable Rohingya population. During CSB’s outreach and Community Program work, they recognised the need for an emergency fund. They frequently came across cases of vulnerable refugees in Johor who have no safety net during unforeseeable events. With support, they can provide emergency relief including assistance with medical bills, rental assistance following sudden eviction, and food/aid relief during disasters such as flooding, fire, or the COVID-19 pandemic
