Swavalambi Bharat Abhiyan’s Arth Sanchay Campaign has made history by becoming one of the world’s largest not-for-profit cashless and paperless donation drives in terms of number of donors. This landmark achievement was facilitated by the innovative use of technology, which enabled over 4,000 donors from across India to contribute a total of more than 1.2 crores within just 40 days.
