Why ‘A day on Ginny’s Planet’? 

Since we began in 2019, we have been on a rollercoaster ride! It is exciting, challenging, has its ups and downs. Most of all, it is meaningful and fun only when people like you join us on the ride!

Till now, we have reached 2000+ people, done 60+ workshops with people across age groups, engaged directly with 200+ children, partnered with 13+ social enterprises, and offered free/sponsored as well as revenue generating services and products. We have launched 10 different kinds of workshop series and continue to design more!

We are committed to providing inclusive services. This requires availability of resources like tactile books/games, and people such as sign language interpreters, and so on. It is tough to cover the costs for these without charging a high amount from users. To cover such costs while offering affordable and inclusive services and spaces, we are launching this fundraiser event: A day on Ginny’s Planet!

When you book a spot, you help us raise funds!
