Namaste!

We earnestly invite your support for Bal Ashram and help for children rescued from child labour and slavery. You can help rekindle the smiles of children robbed of their childhoods.

The ordeals of Kalu, Aslam & Sneha ended up in success stories owing to the generous support of individuals and organizations. Seven year old Shankar, nine year old Abdul & fifteen year old Joseph (all names changed) living at Bal Ashram have dreams of becoming a policeman, doctor and engineer like any other child of this age. Would you be the one to help them to fulfil their tender dreams?

We want the children at Bal Ashram to have the best quality of life possible, therefore we propose the following projects for which we need your support:

1. Rehabilitation and education of the children
We are hard pressed for funds in order to run Bal Ashram. At present the running cost of Bal Ashram is borne by the Embassy of Netherlands and Kids Rights (Netherlands).

2. Construction of peripheral boundary walls
The 13 acre land parcel on which Bal Ashram stands is split into 3 portions (boys' rehabilitation centre, girls' vocational training centre and cultivation land). The Ashram is partially fenced by boundary walls at the moment, exposing it to various risks.

3. A solar cooking and water heating system
Acknowledging our respect for the environment, we would like to install eco-friendly solar heaters that would be used for cooking and heating water for the residents of Bal Ashram.

4. Subsistence Organic Vegetable Farm
We wish to set up a farm to grow vegetables towards the daily requirements of Bal Ashram's kitchen for self-sustainability.

5. Mobile Medical Van and Health Awareness Camps
Bal Ashram has been gifted an ambulance for villagers in the vicinity. The most needy women and children from the nearby villages do not often get medical attention. We aim to appoint a part-time lady doctor and a nurse/ health worker to staff regular clinics and camps for these women and children.

6. Energy Generation through bio-waste
Bal Ashram would like to set up a Bio Waste Plant to generate energy for the Ashram.
