Happy Diwali

Diwali Greetings to you !

Diwali festival of lights, smiles, food and family.  It also marks school vacations for children who look forward to a trip outside the city. 

Children without families also have dreams of celebrating Diwali.  We at Bal Asha Trust understand this very well and plan Diwali for our children much in advance as family.

This Diwali vacations are special as apart from wonderful festival plans we planned a trip for the kids to Lonavala.  Lonavala is a hill station about 100 kms from Mumbai. 

The planning included travel, stay, clothes, medicines, special diet, food and fun activities for them.

The children had an amazing time exploring the town and doing different activities.  They visited a Wax Museum, Dinosaur Park, Game World, 9D Cinema & Mirror Maze over two days.    They also enjoyed lovely home cooked food at a kitchen ran by a family and had a snack at McDonalds.  They danced to Bollywood music and played games.  They are back to Bal Asha home with happy memories.

We are so thankful for the support we receive from our donors so that we could give wonderful trip to our children. 

We wish you and family a great Diwali festival season.  May this festival bring lots of love, laughter, health and wealth to you and your loved ones. If you wish to make a donation this festive season, please do click on the "Give now" button and share with your friends and family. 

Thank you !

Reaching out to many like Devi

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Bal Asha Trust!

Thank you for supporting and assisting us in our work through your donations and well wishes.  Your generous donations have helped us to reach special needs, destitute children in some of our state’s most backward and remote areas, so that we, as a whole, can ensure a better future for them.

Child Devi (name changed) was born about 400 kms away from Mumbai, Maharashtra.  She was admitted in a children’s home there immediately after birth due to some social reasons, by the child welfare authorities. During the time of  admission, it was found she had right foot congenital deformity. The organization gave her the best care available, but the organization did not have access to appropriate medical resources to provide her the medical aid she needed.

The organization contacted Bal Asha Trust for support as we had experience in providing proper medical aid to children with special needs.  Bal Asha, did not hesitate for a moment before opening it’s doors for the baby. Soon permissions were obtained, formalities were conducted, and Devi joined the Bal Asha family at a meagre age of 4 months.

The Bal Asha Team reached out to the best doctors in the city and after check ups and medical tests, it was revealed that she had tibial hemimelia with foot deformity.   

Recently, Devi’s treatment was started by “a serial casting method followed by tenotomy” by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in one of the city’s most prestigious children’s hospital.   Though the treatment process will take time,  we are hopeful that this will help in moulding a better future for Devi.    

Please help us to reach out to children like Devi, please donate.  You can also make a recurring donation. 

Thank you !

Summer Vacations to remember !

Visit to Prince of Wales Mumbai

Dear Donor Namaste,

Greetings from Bal Asha Trust!

We are thankful for your valuable generous support through GlobalGiving.   This has helped us to continue giving quality life to abandoned children in our care.

Like every other year summer break came with a bang with a host of fun activities for our children at Bal Asha Trust.

The month of May saw Summer fiesta at its best under the shady trees of Bal Asha premises.  Craft, drawing, pottery, clay, modelling, making greeting cards were same of things children learnt.   Workshops all cleanliness, safety, introduction to the world of music were conducted.

Bal Asha has always encouraged children to develop a broad mission by conducting visits to place at the Nehru Planetarium, KidZania (a  professinal role play area) where role playing forms an integrate part.  The Prince of Wales Museum, where the past and present unfolds itself through artefacts and important personalities.

The highlight was a visit to Magazine Street Kitchen, where children saw food being cooked on a large scale and chefs churring out some choicest dishes.    She lads were thrilled with all the fascinating things around them.

The final finale of the fiesta was a certificate of appreciation for participation followed by a rollicking afternoon of fun and dance.

The summer break just got over and kids have started going to school with much more happiness, just like any other kid in the family.  Thank you for making this possible.

Please continue your support and do share about our project with your friends and family.  You can share the link by email on blogs / social media. 

Thank you !
