Fundraiser closed!

Protect girls from deadly diseases

Focus: Girl Child , Health

106% Funded
OPEN windows at night let in cool, fresh air... plus a swarm of mosquitoes. With summer approaching, fund netting on dormitory windows, so Baale's girls can sleep with them open without worrying about diseases.

Mosquito bites - which are preventable - can cause malaria, dengue, chickungunya and other vector-borne infections, and this is bound to get worse during the hot months, and then monsoon.

Instead of enjoying the summer holidays, illness will mean the girls will remain cooped up inside, recovering. Meshes will not only let in a cool breeze but will keep out bothersome insects and the health hazards they bring.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Only ₹26,000 to buy and install window meshes!

With the funds raised new window meshes will be installed on all the windows of the two dormitories!

WHY WINDOW MESHES MATTER

According to reports, India's health care system is still struggling with how to handle dengue and malaria outbreaks. With a national situation such as this, it is imperative to take every precautionary measure possible as part of duty of care that Baale have for their girls. Window meshes will add another layer of care and comfort for young girls who are coming to terms with their troubled backgrounds.

Precautionary measures will ensure the girls' health.

We found that India had nearly 6m annual clinically diagnosed dengue cases between 2006 and 2012 – almost 300 times greater than the number of cases that had been officially reported.

According to the World Health Organization, there are about 390million cases of dengue fever worldwide. India also saw a doubling up of cases of dengue from 2014 to 2015.

THE PLAN

Once the fundraiser is complete, new window meshes will be purchased and installed at the Baale Mane on all the windows of the two dormitories. ₹24,000 will be enough to buy the mesh, and ₹2,000 will pay for the labour costs. 44 girls and their five caretakers will benefit from the new window meshes.

Window meshes will provide comfort and safety for the girls while indoors.
