WHAT IS PROSFERO
Prosfero is a non-profit started by founder Aadi Shankar in 2018. Prosfero aims to collect clothing from the greater Princeton, NJ area, and then provide this clothing to children in India who don't have enough money to afford their own.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Prosfero tries to make it easier for their Donor's because you deserve it. There are only 4 easy steps in our process of shipping clothing.
1) Donor's put their used clothing in plastic bags for a Prosfero representative to pick it up.
2) A Donor schedule's a time for a Prosfero representative to come pick up a donation.
3) The Prosfero volunteer cleans, irons, folds, and then gets the clothing ready to ship.
4) DHL International exports to Panipat, India, where Prosfero distributes the clothes among students who aren't affluent enough to buy much of their own.
PROUDLY SHIPPING THROUGH DHL INTERNATIONAL
As of 2020, Prosfero has partnered with DHL International to efficiently and safely provide students with clothing.
