Who we are?

Paper Donation is a simple task; we make it simpler by collecting it from your doorsteps. Wouldn’t you be pleased to bring a smile on a child’s face? But how? We, at PAPERVIDYA, bring this concept of donating old Newspapers/Books/Magazines etc. to us ,the sale proceed of which will be used to educate an underprivileged child.

What we do?

Our Concept - We have been assisting less fortune children in the past by providing books, school fees, uniforms and bags etc and the satisfaction it brings to see a child smile, to see a child jump with joy is huge compared to any materialistic pleasures. Now we intend to make this project a fulltime regular edu-aid for the underprivileged children. For this, we just need your old newspapers.


Why do we need to recycle newspaper?
