Adhik Kadam


Adhik hails from Pune, Maharashtra, and went to Kashmir on a pleasure tour for a few weeks, but what he saw and experienced in Kashmir and Jammu, changed his destiny. He has since then been working in the Kashmir-Jammu area and has established five hostels for orphan girls. Ongoing strife in Kashmir and Jammu has left many women destitute, and also made many children orphans. BWF works to provide shelter to these young children, provide them quality education and also work with women to make them independent by learning different skills. Adhik also works in the health care area and provides emergency trauma care ambulances and provide help round the clock. His organization is also working with the Directorate of Health Services and Border Security force.
Working in such a difficult area like Jammu and Kashmir, Adhik has been threatened and kidnapped several times but with his sincere commitment to helping those who need the most help, he has been able to remain safe, and now the Kashmir Government, Military, and army all support his organization.
During Covid Crisis, Adhik and his team have provided meals to 500 needy families in the interior areas and also provided medications as needed.
Today the BWF has become a trusted organization in the Jammu Kashmir area.

Kashmir is one of the burning issues in the World. The sufferers are people of Kashmir anyway. However, children are most vulnerable to this; especially orphan girls. Adhik Kadam, here, shows a different perspective of looking at things, that how issues can be countered by love. It may take centuries to bring about change too, but somewhere should be the start!
All these are great opportunities to learn and connect with actual people making a difference in people's lives.
