Glenn Family Foundation: BSA has been partnered with the Glenn Family Foundation (GFF) since 2007. Initially, the foundation provided funds to build the child rehabilitation centre on BSA premises which began construction in 2007 and was completed in 2009. The facility includes dormitories, offices and a computer lab, making it key to our operation. Since 2007, GFF has continued to support BSA by giving ongoing donations each year that help to provide food, uniforms and other necessities for 100 children at BSA. These donations are vital to allowing BSA to operate as we do and allow us to continue our work going forward.
Caritas India: Since 2013, Caritas India has worked alongside BSA in our fight against child labour. Caritas India and BSA are addressing the issue through a holistic convergence approach, working together to run projects that work towards our core goal of, ‘moving towards child labour free society.’ These projects have been run both at community level, where children’s clubs and vigilance committees have been formed to promote and protect child rights and at district level where an NGO network, with a focus on child rights, has been formed.
CHILDLINE: We have been partnered with CHILDLINE India since 2011. THey are who are an organisation who run a HOTLINE to support children in need of care and protection. They receive over 6 million calls each year from across India and then take action to support these children and ensure of their safety. As a partner of CHILDLINE, our role is to run the hotline for the Kalimpong District meaning that calls received from this area are redirected to BSA and our highly trained team then take appropriate action to ensure of the best interests of the child.
