ONE in four children in India are malnourished, adversely affecting their growth and development. Fund dry rations requirements for six months so Baale can provide their girls with three square meals a day.

The girls arriving at Baale Mane are often severely undernourished, their bodies depleted of essential nutrients. This makes a balanced diet crucial to bring them back to health and for maintaining their stable growth, mentally and physically.

Home-cooked meals with the staples listed for this Fundraiser and vegetables from their garden ensure the continuing well-being of the 45 young girls currently at Baale Mane.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Help Baale Mane provide healthy meals to 45 girls!

The funds raised will go ensuring healthy meals for the girls at Baale Mane.


Nutrition and education go hand in hand. Undernourished children don’t perform well at school and underperform when compared to their well-nourished peers. Moreover, nutritional deficiencies affects their immune system, make them prone to catching infections and conditions such as anaemia - especially in adolescent girls - affecting their development. A balanced and regular diet are important for them to develop to their full potential.

A balanced diet will help these girls grow into healthy and strong women.

A focus on women’s nutrition and their empowerment to make informed choices about the nutrition and well-being of their children will make of India a global leader.

After coming to Baale, I understood the importance of eating healthy food and thinking about what goes in my body. My immunity has improved greatly.
