BWF plans to construct a 250-children home in Jammu. The constructed home will include residential space, kitchen, library and vocational training center. The construction has become necessary because of the challenges faced with rental houses e.g. having to move every few years, maximum capacity being 50 people, etc. Asha for Education is supporting part of the construction costs. The following amounts were funded in 2016: Asha Stanford ($60,491), Asha Seattle ($39,975) and Asha NYC/NJ ($15,074). For more details see:
Borderless World Foundation (BWF) aims to improve the lives of orphaned girls in the rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir, who have been deeply affected by the geo-political unrest in the border areas between India and Pakistan. It aims to lay the path of socio economic and cultural development making peace and tolerance the essence of humanity in the conflict areas of J&K state.
Borderless World Foundation was started in 2002 by Adhik Kadam and Bharti Mamani. The primary aim of the organization is to work towards physical and psychological recovery and social re-integration of girl children who have been the victims of armed conflict. They are currently running four homes in different villages in Kashmir Valley (3) and Jammu (1), where girls from two to seventeen years of age live together as one big family. BWF also focuses on education, health-care, women's business center, etc. and other initiatives for societal upliftment in the conflict prone areas.
