While Mumbai may be the city of dreams and hopes for some, it is exactly the opposite for many. The underprivileged, who often become victims of human trafficking and poverty, show the other side of the city. Home to Asia’s largest slum, this is the city where many people dream of one meal a day. To change this horrifying reality, and bring safety, education, and many more opportunities for the underprivileged in Mumbai, there are several NGOs working day and night. You too can make a difference and volunteer with these NGOs who will always appreciate as much help as they can get. Here are seven such NGOs in Mumbai, so choose and start making the world a better place.

1. Sounds Of Silence (SOS)

SOS is India’s first technology-based NGO that is trying to provide equal opportunities for hearing-impaired people. They want to turn their biggest disability into their best ability by using technology. SOS is doing so by teaching those with hearing impairments to work on mobile phones and training them in relevant skills. Doing this opens up learning and employment opportunities by removing the obstacles presented by a hearing loss.

7. Door Step School

Even in 2020, there are many underprivileged kids who have no access to education and resources, so Door Step School is doing their bit for them. One of the oldest NGOs in Mumbai, its main focus is to reach out to the children of labourers or slum dwellers and eliminate illiteracy. They teach them the basics, bring them to par, get them enrolled in local government schools and ensure the children don’t drop out.
