These youths from Assam are running a business to contribute to the poor
In a fast moving world where the financially unprivileged people are taken for granted, a group of youths from Assam are doing their best to contribute for the betterment of the poor and needy people of the state.
Abhinov Gogoi, Debankar Saikia, Jiban Dihingia and Rohit Saikia from Assam are doing a noble work to contribute to the society in a way that could be an inspiration for all. These youths have started an online portal called ‘EthnoShopping’ which deals with selling stuff made in India, so that the poor artisans could be benefitted in return. A big chunk of the financial profits that they make from selling the products are given away to the poor and the needy. The initiative is not only to provide financial assistance, but also to bring the products made by the Assamese artisans to the global market, whose art is nearly at the verge of dying. Many artisans are now getting a chance to earn from their traditional occupation only because of these four students.
In a recent move, the youths donated all their profits for the development of the residents of a village named Kawoimari Gaon which is located in Dhemaji district of Assam. The village is completely underdeveloped with no electricity, water supply or proper road connectivity. They not only donated their earnings from the online portal to the villagers, but also established a hand pump to help the people with potable water, distributed solar lamps, and donated cash money to a handful of elderly people of the village.
