The Bal Ashram Trust (“BAT”) is a non-profit organization founded by Nobel Peace Laureate Mr. Kailash Satyarthi. We are registered in India as a Trust, and our registered office and principal place of business is at L-6 III Floor Kalkaji, New Delhi-110019. BAT envisions a world where all children are free, safe, healthy, receive quality education, and have the opportunity to realise their potential. The Mission of BAT is to end all forms of violence against children including child trafficking, child labour and slavery. Bal Ashram established in 1998, is the rehabilitation and training center of Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save the Childhood Movement) catering for the special needs of victims of child labour. It provides rescued children with the compassion, education and vocational training they need. It helps them to become confident and skilled enough to overcome their past and lead dignified lives, so that they become agents of change against exploitation and abuse.  To make the vision of a child-friendly world a reality, BAT is scaling up Mr. Satyarthi’s four decades of work both at the grassroots as well as at global level through the realization of his numerous initiatives.
