About Wishes and Blessings


Wishes and Blessings is a registered NGO based in Delhi. Set up under the aegis of Dr. Geetanjali Chopra in 2014, the organization cuts across the spectrum of gender and age to help those who need it. The NGO is a unique platform to connect donors and beneficiaries, to bring together those who are blessed to help those who have unfulfilled wishes. They believe that happiness is not just an end, but a means to an end as well, and therefore do not have one focus area but 9 causes among which are skill development, infrastructure, education and hygienic food. Currently their focus area is the poor and elderly of Delhi/NCR. They are doing their part to counter this problem by building their first old age home. Called “Mann Ka Tilak”, the home was opened in April 2018 and aims to give the elderly the respect and dignity of life they deserve. This is part of their long-term project to build a chain of old age homes across India.
