Life in Bal Mandir is hard for every child, but some are luckier than others.
I have just received the saddest news. Panche -who I liked to call Little Budha-
“will no longer be around us” this is what Kalpana, an orphan, a friend and a volunteer at Balmandir communicated to us.
During my last visit to Bal Mandir I witnessed a very special, funny, warm and magical scene.
Panche and Trilochana were chatting and laughing together heartedly. At one point they stood up and decided to play trains, Trilo was the engine and Panche, holding on to her waist, marched around one of Bal Mandir's patios. The scene wouldn't have been that unusual if it wasn't because Trilochana, apart from being a restless and wonderfully active child, is also blind.
And like this, throwing herself into the abiss which, at this particular moment, was the patio for her; confident and trusting, she drove this train that was carrying her and Panche through life.
At that time I could only look and admire Panche's wonderful smile, holding onto his friend's waist and every now and then looking out so that they could avoid any obstacles.

On the morning of the Thursday the19th of April 2012, Ruta6 enjoyed a visit from the students and teachers from IES valle del Saja. The idea was to make a human chain to take books from Ruta6 to their school and to put them on sale for the morning of the following day. On Friday the 20th, they celebrated Book Day and once more, we see the commitment from these young people to the sponsorship funds for Balmandir.
Giving , as the photo clearly shows, a helping hand to support Education.
Thank you again
