And for specific queries please check with us before sending any material which is not mentioned here.

  • What is the list of material that you take ?

    Clothing is one of the three basic needs (out of food, shelter and clothing). It not only symbolizes a person’s dignity but also offers a protection against the elements. While there are more than 100 issues being talked about in the development sector, right from domestic violence to global warming, this basic need doesn’t find a mention anywhere. Breathemore wants to make clothing a matter of concern as an important issue. In addition, we also encourage people to contribute other household items like stationery, toys, utensils.

    Our first request to anyone who wants to give material is that you should first visit our processing centers to see how we work. You can visit our processing centers in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkata. Call up our offices to fix a time to visit us.
