We all are well aware about the problems in slums. Snehalaya has started working with the slum children since last 8 years through its Balbhavan project, currently 1300 children (child beggars, child labors, rag pickers, children in conflict with law, school drop-outs etc.) are attending Balbahvan.
Balbhavan has recently conducted survey to know the need of the similar type of work in various slums and identified two major slums.
On 24th, October 2011, sixth branch of Balbhavan project has been started in Sarjepura slum. The local community has shown the interest to involve in the activity. First time, the local people organized the whole programme. The eminent personalities like Mr. Arif Shaikh local Corporater, Dr. Vijay Patil, Dr. Mahesh and Dr. Anshu Muley, Mr. Nirmal Gandhi and Dr. Suhas Ghule were present for the programme. They appreciated the efforts of Bahlbhavan project and assured to extend all sort of assistance to Balbhavan.
The representative of the local community gave the vote of thanks to the guests. The new Balbhavan has been named as ‘Kalpak Balbhavan’.
