Belongg is an impact venture that seeks to promote diversity and inclusion in Indian cities and serve people who, otherwise, due to their gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, caste, or ability, would face prejudice/bias and get severely compromised access to services such as housing, jobs, healthcare, and education. Belongg seeks to fix this through a community-based approach that brings together members of these groups and allies. In addition to these services, we also host a range of events – book readings, a supper club, open mic nights – to cultivate a thick community of likeminded people. You can follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
The Belongg team has, over the years, benefited immensely from a range of books on diversity and inclusion and we are very excited to curate some of them and bring them to you at your doorstep through the Belongg Library that we are launching in Delhi today. We will keep adding books, films, and readings to the library and will also have a calendar of meetups, book readings, screenings.
We invite you to become a member. Memberships are free and carry a refundable deposit based on the number of books you choose to have parallel access to. Book deliveries will be charged at INR 75 for members located in South Delhi.
