JBF is focused on building a network of like-minded people who can support the cause of supporting poor and under-served children. We wish to collaborate with other agencies - governmental or non-governmental to help children shape as responsible citizens. In the future, We wish to suitably contribute in Government events, policy formulation or any other aspect where JBF could be of any help. We will do our best to motivate and encouraging the civil society to contribute their mite in whatever way they can and partner/assist/empower us to serve people in need and who are helpless”
