KiranBala Foundation aims to create tangible and measurable impact on the livelihood of underprivileged sections by intervention in medical, educational, skill development and agricultural sectors. The primary focus is on the historically backward operational areas of Purba Midnapore district in West Bengal, India
Criticall ill patients with no access to modern medical facilities including routine medical examination and testing are provided support through high-quality medical check-ups in their own village.
Below Poverty Line (BPL) Patients are provided with free-medicine, blood tests and ECG Scans. High number of patients are suffering from diabetes, arthritis, high-blood pressure, cancer, gastro-disesases, thalassemia etc. If the treatment is not possible in Purba Midnapore due to non-availability of trained doctors or hospitals, the patients are transferred to kolkata for further treatment. The medical camps are held in our clinic once every month and the follow up tests are scheduled every 3 months. There is no primary health care facility in 30 Kms radius of the villages.
KiranBala Foundation also supports basic education and computer skills for underprivileged people. India is globally recognised as the super-power for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) development and training. ICT industry has changed lives of many families by uplifting them to higher standards of living.
However, benefits of these developments have not reached the rural indian households. KiranBala Foundation has started a ICT Training Center for rural youth and children to provide them with basic training. These youth can improve their employability skills by learning about the latest technologies and programming techniques.
The other objective of the ICT training is to take the knowledge and information available on internet to the rural youth and children. This will provide them with a level-playing field with the urban youth in terms of access to information and thus reduce the gap in digital divide.
Finally, we provide free support services to students and underprivileged to fill up online application forms, e-governance documents, electronic payments, print-outs and office administration. The staff and faculty of this training center are drawn from the qualified youth in the nearby villages.
