Financial Note : 1) Most of the Institutional Income is a grant from JRD Tata Trust. 2) Sales/Fees include sales of various food products, items produced at the Training-cum-Demo Centre, Services charges from Self Help Groups, and Hall Rent. 3) Opening and closing stock adjusted in Direct Programme Activities. The stock figure (Rs108,370) has remained unchanged since 31 March 2012; this gives rise to the risk that it will soon have to be written off. 4) Revolving fund and Corpus fund for Self-Help Groups have been included in Current Assets as they have been reported on the Asset side of the Balance Sheet.

NGO Profile :
Baradrone Social Welfare Institution (BSWI) was set up to work for the underprivileged in West Bengal by providing them with education, healthcare and sustainable livelihoods.

Some of their activities in 2013-14 were:

  • Education and Awareness: BSWI focuses on quality education for underprivileged children with a special focus on the girl child. They support adolescent girls with tuition and book grants, and identify adolescent girls eligible for government school enrolment. A total of 441 girls from 93 villages were supported by BSWI in FY14. Out of 119 students, 89 girls are studying in degree courses, like mathematics and chemistry honours.
  • Women Empowerment: The organisation provides educational support to poor school going girls, a revolving fund provision for poor women of the community, and engages women in different income generating activities like farming clubs. A total of 5,165 women from marginalised areas participated in 56 SHGs. BSWI also organises workshops to sensitise the population on women’s rights and gender equality.
  • Economic Empowerment: BSWI supported 3,412 women with micro-finance from Rs2,000 to Rs5,000 for pursuing various household income generating activities such as puffed rice making, net making, vegetable growing, tailoring, goat rearing and milk vending. Leaders of these SHGs (also known as federation leaders) were provided with training on gender rights, communication skills, group dynamics, accounting and management in order to interact with the leaders of Panchayats, banks and government officials.
  • Natural Resource Management: BSWI supports the community in excavating water harvesting structures towards ensuring the first crop and at least one third of the second crop. Critical irrigation projects by farmers that helped in ensuring timely irrigation to plots and saving them from crop damage were also supported by BSWI. The organisation encouraged exploring the proper packaging practice for vegetable cultivation and the introduction of fishery to increase the rural population’s income.
  • Community Health and Well-being: BSWI motivates families to seek full immunization coverage, periodic check-ups, make youth aware of STDs, get diagnostic tests during pregnancy and treat illnesses early. The ‘Community Health through Community Initiative’ provides health services at a clinic for the rural population.
