Story

Badlav established on 15th September 2015 is registered under the Society’s Registration Act, 1860 having 12A and 80G certificates. Badlav with its Bhikshavratti Mukti Abhiyan is aimed at uplifting beggars, one of the most deprived sections in the Indian society and usually not covered under any major Government upliftment scheme. Our greater objective is to provide them a platform to recreate their own identity with dignity through economically productive work.
We have a shelter home in which we provide food, clothes and shelter to beggars who we mobilise from different parts of Lucknow. We serve them with love and respect. We also take care of their medical and psychological health in order to help them over come trauma, distress or ailments.


To ensure that they do not go back to beggary we help them start livelihood. They are earning by selling vegetables, lemon tea, fruits, peanuts, masks etc. We also help them in recreating their identity by getting their aadhar cards made. We then link them with bank account and government welfare schemes. Gradually they start believing in themselves , some even reconnect to their families.
Till date,320 beggars have left begging and taken up work which pays them a decent amount. 1314 have been linked with various government welfare schemes. 407 have been mobilised to our shelter home and 298 have been re united to their families. Still there are thousands who are desperate to leave begging because no one willingly becomes a beggar. Your support will help us achieve their desire. With your contribution we will provide them healthy, nutritious food and kits to start livelihood.
