Our Beliefs

Friends of KBF are a UK registered charity set up with a mission to stand alongside, support and provide resources for Kolkata Bhalobashi Foundation (KBF) – a charity established in India in 2006 who provide education, opportunities and care for some of the most vulnerable people in Kolkata.

Our Vision is to support the work of KBF in three important ways


  • To facilitate education for children who are disadvantaged by poverty and/or disability, supporting their wellbeing and development and providing opportunities for them to gain skills for a better future.
  • To provide opportunities for children to play, socialise and learn, away from the challenges and responsibilities of their everyday life.
  • To provide a home, basic healthcare and a sense of belonging for people who have been left to die with no one to care for them, and to allow those who do not recover to die with dignity.
