Our Global Month of Volunteering unites our employees and empowers them to make a real difference. Through GMV, we have already impacted the lives of over 1.36 lakh beneficiaries across India.”

According to the release, Amazon.in volunteers came together to support a range of activities to support and empower communities by fostering local self-help groups to promote indigenous products enabling a sustainable livelihood; supporting girl students in STEM education through various nonprofit collaborations; helping reduce waste in communities by transforming waste fabric into usable bags and planting self-sustaining saplings while encouraging them towards building a more sustainable and environmentally conscious community; distributing ration kits including ready-to-eat meals and essential groceries like dal and rice among underserved communities and many such programmes.
