About our mission

Borderless World ! !

The Borderless World Foundation (bwf) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit, registered organization based in Pune, Maharashtra. Established in March 2002, bwf aims to provide a 'Humane Touch' to the border areas of India and beyond. The bwf family is an open circle of people with a 'change-begins-with-me' approach to this cause. The thought behind bwf originated in 1998 when the founders (Bharti Mamani & Adik Kadam) started work at the grassroots level in the conflict-ridden frontier district of Kupwara in Kashmir. Their first hand experience of the human tragedy made them aware of the fact that the people of a nation often do not realise that their border areas function as the 'shock absorbers' of the country, and that life for the people in these areas is far from normal – it's full of uncertainty. Loss of lives, violence, fear and chaos are the order of the day. Socio-economic stagnancy, corruption and civil administrative breakdown affect all walks of life. Scores of thousands of children have been orphaned due to violence; close to a million of them have dropped out of their childhood. In 1997, founders Bharti Mamani and Adhik Kadam, surveyed most of the 369 villages in the district of Kupwara. They found that there were close to fifteen thousand orphans in the district alone, most of whom were girl children. There were shelters for orphan boys, but there were none for girls.

We Stand For Education

“The true purpose of education is to make minds.” And that’s exactly what BWF primarily works for. Education is an essential indigent like salt in any dish in a young child’s life to build a bright, secure and healthly future.

Health Care

Because of the conflict in the Kashmir Valley, the medical services aren’t easily available there. Especially the girls and women find it difficult to obtain proper medical and health care due to cultural and moral policing and discrimination, and before suffer from lack of proper medical care

Women Empowerment

For many years, BWF has been working for Kashmiri Girl Child for their education and their upbringing. Day by day, as nature changes, women transform from a girl to woman and now they are capable to stand on their own feet. In this regards, what we need to do is to guide them and help them to make their future prosperous and joyful.


volunteers do not
necessarily have the time;
they just have the heart.

Photography ….. living life ….understanding life..

Photography at Basera-e-Tabassum My association with BWF began, as an answer to my prayer for the children of Kashmir.

    A disconnected-Disjointed Report of Impressions ‘The love affair started tenderly: a warm hug, a lightless night, a dim lantern, the resonating trickle of streams and whispers of footfalls. I had reached Peth-Bugh (Anantnag) tired, after two long and extremely hot journeys. The cool still air was a respite. As I stepped out of the car, a strange good feeling set in. Someone hugged me……read more

    Neha & Furqan, MSW student from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai

    ‘I stayed in Basera-e-Tabassum (BeT) in Kupwara district of Jammu & Kashmir State for a period of 20 days. As a requirement of my M.A. in Social Work course, I had to undertake a one-month block fieldwork in an organization. I came to know about Borderless World Foundation (BWF), when girls from BeT had come to Pune-Mumbai for an exposure visit. After interacting with the girls, I felt that the organization was doing some genuine work & hence decided to do my block fieldwork with them’……..read more

    I will be there with you guys always, as a part of your life

    Falgooni Mehta, Lawyer, Mumbai

    At the outset I must say that I am stating my thoughts and feelings – very personal ones after having visited Basera- E- Tabassum (Abode of Smiles) situated in Kupwara district Kashmir. Couple of years ago when I was told by doctors that I may not survive a life threatening illness, after having survived it, I took a serious look at my life and dreams again and this time I was not taking a chance on giving up on either of them. My dream was to work with Children in conflict areas. Though I never thought of Kasmir at that time, I was thinking in terms of Afghanistan and Pakistan……..read more
