Area of work
An NGO dedicated to rehabilitating orphaned, abandoned, and destitute children by way of adoption so that they can live a normal life.
As a part of Worldchildren Welfare Trust India, Bal Anand was set up in 1984 with the aim to receive, shelter and rehabilitate orphaned, abandoned and destitute minors by way of adoption. Since then, Bal Anand has grown from hosting 8 children to 55 children today. Among those 55, they have 33 special children who need special care. The children's home works towards creating an environment that provides the child warmth, care and material comforts of a home and family until an adopting family is found.
For its special children, Bal Anand has a trained and professional staff who have dedicated their lives for a cause that will help children wake up with a new ray of hope and with new horizons everyday. They have therapy for these young minds and encourage the children in art, craft, yoga and dance as they strongly believe that the creative mind of a child is like an ocean which has no end.
Bal Anand has been delivering its mission through the love, support and funding from international and Indian bodies and several individual volunteers from across the world. However, the number of forsaken children at the center is growing rapidly and it is making the job of finding adoptive parents for these children nearly impossible. This means, that the center must keep the children at the center and provide them shelter, food, and education as long as they are not adopted. Hence, they need generous support from people like to continue providing the right care to the unfortunate children.
