Safa Baitul Maal Religious and Welfare Trust is a national non-profit organization that brings people together to challenge poverty in creative ways. We believe that there are individuals who have untapped potential to make the world a better place but lack the necessities (training, systems & structures, financial resources, etc) to further their work. We find these groups & individuals and work alongside them building relationships that bridge economic & cultural divides & produce empowered leaders. It is our dream to further break the cycle of dependence and build strong bridges for women and girls to rise up & equip the society around them. We all have a curiosity about our purpose and how it relates to the world around us and beyond. We want to make a difference & know that our life counts for something outside of ourselves. For those who have the desire to be a part of positive change in the world, we ask you to act and provide you an outlet to do so.
SAFA BAITUL MAAL WAS FOUNDED
LIVES HAVE BEEN CHANGED
WORKING ON 10 OF 17 UN's SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
To see upliftment of the impoverished in the society in the domains of health, education, women empowerment, skill development and livelihood.
Cultivating uniformity in the hearts of people by making all possible efforts to kindle the flame of love and affection by way of providing the marginalized all possible aid, support, and services.
Our work on the ground is based on extensive household & area surveys which help us determine the actual circumstances of the people on the ground. Through the available data we try to reach out to the most disadvantaged and marginalised sections of the society and assist them according to their needs.
Beneficiary Selection Criteria
The survey system that SBM follows is fundamental to our work. After careful surveys, we shortlist the most deserving beneficiaries living in extremely vulnerable settings. This evaluation process is carried out by considering multiple factors like the total number of family members, their age, health & educational status and the number of dependent members in the family. This exercise includes the differently-abled, widow, senior citizens, pregnant women, abandoned women and single parents. By analyzing the surveyed data, we shortlist and divide our beneficiaries into three categories and the BPL (Below Poverty Line) category will be assisted through our different programmes.
The BPL categorization is calculated by deducting the four major expenses, (Rent + Electricity + Education + Medical) from the monthly household income. The remaining amount after deducting the expenses will be divided with the total number of family members to obtain the per capita income of the family. If the per capita income is less than 1500 INR, then the family falls under the BPL category.
