Setup by Chandrabhan Athare Patil Gram Navodaya trust, Balgruh is a home for children who are orphans, abandoned or in distress. Spread over 3 acres of enclosed and secured area, the trust has constructed 8 Balsadans. Each Balsadan has a living room, kitchen room, Mother’s room and Children’s room. Balgruh currently is home to 80 kids.
The trust has endeavoured to develop Balgruh in accordance with International standards and as per the SOS Children’s villages way of care which is based on providing sense of protection and security, emotional support and love, warmth and affection.
The children are provided with free clothing, education, medical health, facilities for entertainment and counselling. The boys and girls attend normal school. For each Balsadan, a mother is appointed. She prepares food, manages studies and inculcates good values in the children under her care. Each Balsadan mother dedicates her life and provides the warmth of feelings, love, security and emotional needs.
Balgruh intends to assist the kids till they are settled in life, boys till they find a job and girls till they are married.
Balgruh aims to build more such houses and get more children to take care of so that the not-so-lucky ones can get a family of their own.
