WF Children's home,Balmandir,is an integrated community development program reaching out to the rural and tribal kids across India. It's a free schooling & shelter initiative for the underprivileged kids, additionally engaging in a holistic approach to education,health care, nutritious meals, character/life skills development & continued guidance after graduation. We now support 300 kids, to discover their unique potential, overcome poverty & become self-sufficient to lead a value-oriented life.
1 in 4 children of school-going age is out of school in India. All Education Indicators shows that children from underprivileged/marginalized/disadvantaged groups (girls included) have higher dropout rates, lower learning achievements & are more prone to child labour, trafficking and child marriage. "Our children are our future"& Balmandir provides an environment that will nurture these minds and meld their characters to take responsibility as the future leaders and builders of our community .
Balmandir, ensures every child has a holistic ecosystem to thrive in. We enable 300 students across 4 centers, providing free schooling, infrastructure, computer literacy, english proficiency, nutritious meals & holistic all-round development through sports, yoga, meditation & cultural activities. Today, some of our children are engineers, nurses, managers, professionals & so on.The praises showered on them for their high values & attitude by their employers & families, reflects on our success!
Since Warrier Foundation's inception 15 years ago, WF has an average of 50 graduates yearly, equipped for employment. These children are fit to serve themselves, support their family & contribute towards nation building. Thus, more than 1000 alumnae, 300 existing students & many more in future will be the torch bearers for individual & social integration. We are building a Universal family of children who will grow up into responsible adults contributing towards human-rights & world reformation.
