The FromU2Them nonprofit platform was founded by two friends Akshat Gupta (Metro Realty) and Varun Talreja (Talreja Group). Our team was formed by the coming together of their friends, colleagues and professional networks - each joining the FromU2them cause pro-bono, dedicated to a common fight against the hunger crisis in Mumbai.
Each of our team members is a leader in their field of work - directors of non-profit foundations, finance and accounting specialists, heads of business houses, lawyers, marketing masterminds, yoga & fitness gurus, and most importantly, regular citizens like you and me, who are determined to feed those in need.
We all share one common dream - a dream that Mumbai can rise again. While the city is suffering from one of its worst humanitarian crises, Mumbai has always shown resilience and stood up to bombings, terrorist attacks, and natural calamities.
This is a city that has embraced the diversity of every religion, diversity in every culture and diversity in every smile. A city that has thrived despite this diversity with a density of population that can seem unimaginable anywhere else in the world. A city that is the custodian of 24 million dreams.
WE SALUTE ALL THE BRAVE VOLUNTEERS THAT CARRY OUT OUR MOST IMPORTANT TASK.
THEY ARE THE TRUE HEROES AMONST US.
The team works closely with local government authorities and other non-profit organisations to create accountable databases of people that are without access to any food supply.
Additionally, the platform sources food directly from farmers who have lost their income due to the Covid-19 economic crisis and works in partnership with a powerful distribution chain that reaches every slum and every sealed off containment zone in the city.
Transparency is one of our core values and a guiding principle of our platform. We take our impact accountability seriously and provide donors with detailed reports of the impact made by their contributions. Informing them exactly where their pledge goes and where their money is spent is important to us.
