COOKING three meals a day for 45 girls with basic equipment and minimal manpower is a slow process. Help provide an upgraded kitchen at Baale, where nutrition is crucial to the care given to abandoned girls.

Having outgrown the current facilities at the home, Baale Mane are expanding to a new building with a provision for a modern, more fuel-efficient and hygienic kitchen.

Your contribution towards this will ensure that not only will the quality of meals provided to the girls improve, but also cut down the amount of time guardians spend preparing and serving food, allowing them more time to interact with their wards.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Help Baale Mane provide healthy meals to 45 girls.

This fundraiser has raised ₹1001.


Industrial kitchen equipment, designed for the preparation of a large number of meals on a daily basis is more efficient, in terms of time and fuel. For instance, a dough kneader will make it faster and easier to make rotis for 45 girls and five staff everyday. And a bain-marie can keep prepared food warm for over long periods. Reduced time in the kitchen will increase the time guardians spend helping the girls with studies or other activities.

Upgraded kitchen equipment will help improve the quality of meals for 45 girls.

School age is considered as a dynamic period of growth and development because children undergo physical, mental, emotional, and social changes... Good nutrition is important in supporting growth and maximizing learning potential.
