Empowering Futures: The Journey of ISC Balgram

15th May 2024

For over five decades, ISC Antar Bharati Balgram has been a beacon of hope for (CNCP)children in need of care and protection. The Balgram has served as a nurturing haven for over 500 children who once found themselves in the depths of destitution and brokenness.

At ISC Balgram, every child’s journey begins with a story of resilience and transformation. From their first steps into our premises to their emergence as confident, fulfilled, and contributing individuals in society, each child receives not just shelter, but the love and support they deserve.

Our strength lies in our steadfast commitment to our vision, which is deeply rooted in the dedication of our caregiving staff. Through perseverance and regular capacity-building initiatives, our staff members have become well-versed in the nuances of child care, including a comprehensive understanding of the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, and the socio-emotional needs of every child under our care.

Over time, ISC Balgram has evolved from a need-based institute to a rights-based one, where every child is encouraged and supported to voice their opinions and participate in decision-making processes. Through regular children’s committee meetings, we ensure that their well-being and growth are at the forefront of our agenda, with solutions often stemming from the fresh perspectives of young minds.

In line with our commitment to holistic development, we recently introduced an Aftercare program aimed at equipping our students with the confidence and skills needed to thrive in the outside world. From sessions on financial literacy to workshops on career counselling, we are preparing our children to navigate life’s challenges with resilience and clarity.

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. ISC Balgram is increasingly being recognized as a Center of Excellence in child care, with government departments and stakeholders acknowledging the achievements and happiness metrics of our children. The confident smile on their faces and the satisfaction reflected in the smiles of our partners stand as a testament to our collective success.

As we continue on this journey of empowerment and transformation, we remain committed to creating a brighter future for every child who walks through our doors. Together, we are shaping tomorrow’s leaders and changemakers, one smile at a time.

Join us in our mission to empower futures and build a more compassionate and inclusive society.
