Noida: Independent representatives of Direct Selling company QNET have once again come together to brighten up the festive season for the underprivileged. In a series of events spread across 21 cities throughout India, various groups of Independent Representatives have come forward to raise money to help the underprivileged communities.
Around 1,500 young entrepreneurs, who run a successful direct selling business with QNET, have pledged between INR 50,000 to INR 1 lakh per city towards important causes benefiting a local community in need. This is the fourth year that these entrepreneurs have initiated such an exercise during the festival season to reinforce their commitment to helping communities and their own belief in the spirit of giving.
Funds raised by the group this year will be used to help orphanages, homes for the disabled and the elderly, and for the education as well as provision of essential commodities and educational tools such as stationery and books.
Around 500 such entrepreneurs commenced this years activity in Delhi and neighbouring areas by distributing stationery including notebooks, crayons, colour sets pouches with pencils, and other such items including eatables at Nai Disha Free Education Society in Noida. They have also plans to distribute such items of necessity in other places including Bal sahyog, Bright Futures and Grace Homes, Indirapuram among other locations.
The group of entrepreneurs has also planned other such charitable initiatives in Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, Bhubneshwar, Hubli, Mangalore, Delhi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Jammu and Meerut, between 14 October and 7 November 2018.
Kunal, Manmohan, Anshuman and Sarfaraz Alam who lead the efforts in Delhi along with other entrepreneurs echoed their sentiments behind the initiative by saying “We have been fortunate to find our path and purpose with QNET which has helped us transform, not only our lives, but the lives of those around us. Giving back to our community during this auspicious festival season is our way of paying it forward”.
Commenting on the effort, QNET Global CEO Trevor Kuna said “The initiative undertaken by our Independent Representatives in their individual capacity is truly encouraging. QNET’s underlying philosophy of RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind is the force that drives a lot of what we do. It is a reflection of our business, which is about empowering people to take control of their lives, so that they can, in turn, help empower their communities. After all, there is no better feeling than doing well while you are doing good”.
QNET had in the past partnered with the Cancer Patients Aid Association in Mumbai to support the treatment of children with cancer from low-income families. QNET had also contributed significantly towards the Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya campaign by partnering with the Lions Club in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad on a number of projects including clean drinking water, nutrition education and health camps for children.
