Geeta Menon and Vandita Parikh

Baal Dan Charities was formed to support the basic needs and social welfare of impoverished children (mostly orphans and street children) in Asia, Africa, North America and South America, and to promote their welfare. Given the vast number of impoverished children in these regions, Baal Dan’s initial work and presence was focused on India from 2006 to 2012. As Baal Dan expands globally in 2013, the charity will maintain its commitment to providing aid for grassroots organizations that need support and through providing education as a means to break the cycle of poverty.
Since 2006, Baal Dan has provided aid to over 3,000 children through grants made to a coalition of grassroots partners such as orphanages and NGO’s that are focused on orphans, street children and impoverished children (including refugees).
Baal Dan’s model includes research and vetting of potential grassroots partners through a thorough selection process. Then, on an annual basis Baal Dan works closely with the grassroots partner on identifying and resolving their most critical needs through the development of annual project goals. Baal Dan manages all aspects of the grantee identification, goals, grant monies distribution and accounting, while offering donors transparent reporting, low overhead (no salaried staff) and clear communications on the outcome and impact of their charitable gift. Projects include:
Shelter: Building schools, orphanages or transitional homes.
Water Supply, Sanitation & Hygiene: Building toilets, sanitation systems and water purification filters (not water wells). Providing basic clothing (underwear, nappies), immunizations and medical aid (on a limited basis).
Education and Life Skills: Sponsorship of school fees, educational materials (books, learning aids) and “Baal Dan Kids Days”/volunteer programs.
Food Security and Food Assistance: Assistance with feeding programs, food supply and nutrient rich food for malnourished children.
Disabilities: Sponsorship of food, assistance, wheelchairs and learning aids for impoverished children with special needs
