All the funds collected will go for the welfare of areas affected by the recent floods in Assam. The non-governmental organisation (NGo) Jeevan Shiksha is a grassroot-level organisation that has partnered with the quiz. Jeevan Shiksha works with local communites and other NGOs to provide relief and to make the communities self-sufficient in times of crisis. The NGO is currently hosting health camps in flood-affected regions while also supporting other NGOs to manage rations sent to the afflicted. Once the relief work is taken care of, they plan to work on multiple infrastructural initiatives such as building decentralised water reservoirs with the help of local communities and raising platforms in granaries to prevent them from spoiling during floods.
