ShareALittle is the brainchild of Trishla Pareek and Divya Singhal, who met at Welham Girls’ School, a boarding school in Dehradun.
The platform was formed with the idea to make the process of donating easier and thus get people to donate more often. It also gives NGOs an alternative way of raising funds. The founders identified that people are willing to help others in need but do not always do so. This is because of lack of transparency and general distrust in whether the contribution would reach the right person.
The duo decided to set-up an easy-to-use platform to help genuine NGOs to start fundraisers and spread the word about their campaign. They established a process to verify the authenticity of these NGOs and to ascertain whether the funds raised would be put to use for the intended purpose.
ShareALittle – a little goes a long way – our name and our motto literally express the vision of our endeavour – to get everyone to share a little – even if it’s a small amount, ever so often, and in turn make a big impact!
