We engage with children and stakeholders in communities for promoting a child-friendly environment.
BAL MITRA GRAM - THE CHILD FRIENDLY VILLAGE
Our flagship programme, Bal Mitra Grams (BMG) or Child Friendly
Villages, is a social movement geared toward creating an
empowered ecosystem in villages where the rights of children are
protected. A BMG is a village where every aspect is child-friendly
by empowering their communities.
Children participate in the decision making process through Bal
Panchayats (Children's Council) which are a powerful platform of
leadership in action. Children also participate actively in the Gram
Panchayats (Village Councils) on decisions that affect them.
Inspired by Bal Mitra Grams, BMM aims to implement the same concept in urban communities where children are actively engaged in various programs and sessions which help them in building leadership skills and empowering them to advocate for their own rights. BMM, in association with organizations like Each One Teach One and American Embassy School, provides quality academic support to children through remedial classes to mainstream them into the formal education system.
