OUR WORK

The aims and objectives based on which the Bala Mandir Research Foundation was established, were to open a Research Centre, focusing on problems pertaining to destitute, foundling, deprived, and physically and mentally disabled children, and their families. In the early years post its inception, BMRF conducted extensive research studies aimed at enhancing the learning, psychosocial well-being, mental health, and nutrition levels of children.

Since the year 2000, BMRF’s focus has shifted away from formal scientific research, to the increasingly relevant social sciences. Today, BMRF’s work centres on parenting, and the psychosocial relationship between the adult and child, with emphasis on the Rights for child development.

“The Child has a Right to INFORMED PARENTS,
and PARENTS have a Right to Information on Child Development."


BMRF’s activities span three broad areas; training, dissemination, and research, based on the above premise.

Training

Starting out with the training of parents, and crèche workers, within its own institutions, BMRF now conducts regular, on-going, parenting training programmes for all those in the child’s environment, as defined by PARENTS; Pappa, Amma, Relatives, Elders, Neighbours, Teachers, and Society. This includes parents, schools, crèches, community workers, NGOs, ECCD training institutions, among many others.
Parenting programmes range from Early Childhood, through to Adolescents (as part of a Life Skills programme).

In partnership with organisations such as UNICEF and ChildFund, BMRF has trained and enabled field-level workers to institute and improve parenting practices, and create awareness on holistic child development, among socio-economically deprived communities across Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
