SGB International foundation was created in 2003 and they established Bal Ghar with 3 abandoned children rescued from Railway Station, Ludhiana by a couple of selfless volunteers. Since then Bal Ghar has been rescuing orphans, disabled, unwanted and unclaimed children and giving them a secure home and future. In 2004 Saint Kabir Academy school was established for education of these kids, right now it teaches up to 12th and is CBSE affiliated. In 2005, Bal Ghar was recognized by State & Centre Govt.. as Indian placement agency for adoption of children. Over 200 adoptions have been made possible from Bal Ghar. At this time (April, 2015) there are about 55 children at Bal Ghar and their age ranges from few months to 17 years old.
Sahaita’s association with Bal Ghar has started from 2003 itself. Sahaita is the only organization that funds Bal Ghar and St. Kabir Academy apart from some individual donor contributions. Many Sahaita volunteers regularly visit Bal Ghar and always come back impressed by the care provided to the children. Many Sahaita volunteers have adopted children from Bal Ghar. There have been numerous instances where disabled children have been able to receive medical assistance in some of the best hospitals in India thanks to the generosity of Sahaita volunteers.
