We collect a range of stories- from case studies to social and legal developments concerning the lives of street children. Constant interaction with around 10000 members of Badhte Kadam (literally translated in English as ‘stepping forward’) -a federation of street and working children- helps us gather stories from streets of 7 districts of North India, as seen from the eyes of children themselves.These stories are validated through field visits.
Our Team comprises of children who are/ have been on the streets. Each story involves extensive brainstorming and team work, for which editorial meetings are held regularly. A storyboard is then prepared for final production.
Balaknama is distributed amongst our dedicated clients, children living on the streets, admirers, common people, in markets, at NGOs, civil societies and government authorities. All events/opportunities that carry a scope of developing interest amongst different stakeholders concerning the well being of street and working children are also used for the distribution of Balaknama.
