Nurturing and resourcing vulnerable girl children for a self sustaining and independent adult life.
Baale Mane is dedicated to the care of girls from vulnerable backgrounds such as, domestic violence and child labour. Unlike many other children’s homes, Baale Mane aims to provide girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, long-term support in an environment that resembles a home, not a hostel. The objective of the home is to give each of the girls a fulfilling and happy childhood. Care at Baale Mane is focused on the four principles of the 1989 UN Convention on the rights of the child; survival, protection, development and participation. Special emphasis is given to education and informal learning such as art, drama and dance. All of the girls attend schools in the local area.
The Baale Mane (Baale Mane means “Girls’ home”) at Gopalapura is a home situated on the outskirts of the city of Bangalore, India, for around 60 girls between the ages of 6 and 18. It provides these girl children with a safe and happy living environment, educational opportunity and life-skills and creativity programmes. Of its 7 girl children in 10th standard, 6 received 1st class grades in their 2015 end of year exams.
