Children constitute the most vulnerable section of the society and are considered the important asset of our nation. Socio economic circumstances of a family often result in disintegration and child destitution. Various homes have been established by the government across the nation to supplement or substitute parental care and supervision, to promote the overall well being of the disadvantaged children, by providing protection, care, shelter and rehabilitation to them, by adopting a child-friendly approach.

BALSAHARA is a web based software, to automate and monitor the activities of the Govt run Children homes and Child Care Institutions, like maintaining personal records of the children, effective utilization of the assets and resources available at homes; providing nutritious diet, proper health care, cleanliness & proper clothing, entertainment, education and vocation training for the overall child growth and rehabilitation.Availability of real-time data helps the management in effective implementation and evaluation of the projects/ programs/schemes developed for the benefit of the disadvantaged children. The software also keeps account of the activities of Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) and Child Welfare Committees (CWC) who play a major role in rehabilitation of children in need of care and protection and children in conflict with law. The software is based on Juvenile Justice (Care & protection of Children) Act 2015.
