Rainbow Foundation India (RFI)

Rainbow Foundation India is a national level NGO working for the most marginalised and disadvantaged children. They provide residential facilities to children focussing on child centre care, comprehensive education and complete wellness program. 

NBI collaborated with RFI in 2011 with the start of a residential home for 25 girls in Jalahalli village in Bangalore. The collaboration helped in many aspects other than the financial help. It helped in understanding ways of providing comprehensive care to children, in building and strengthening team, networking with organisations working with children, in building a knowledge base etc. Shortly, within 3 years, RFI helped in starting with another residential home ‘Sneha Ghar’ for boys in Shantinagar, Bangalore in 2014. 

So far, more than 100 girls and 60 boys are being provided with support and care with this partnership.

RFI was our first partners in trying to help the needy and vulnerable children in Bangalore. They showed confidence in us and our program. NBI is ever thankful for the timely support and guidance provided by them. The collaboration is truly valued and we will cherish this partnership for years to come.

Lakshaya Changing Lives

A charity started by a group of likeminded individuals in Bangalore aims at helping orphans and under privileged children. They came to the rescue of children of NBI when they needed the most. 

It was in 2015 when NBI was running a program called ‘Urban Deprived Children’. Under this program, around 50 boys from difficult background and having discontinued education were made to participate in ‘School Motivation Camps’. After completion of the program, we realised that 50% of these boys needed long term support with shelter, food and education. These children were from extremely deprived background or with highly dysfunctional families. Sending them back to the difficult environment did not seem as an option. NBI was then desperately in search of partners for starting of a residential boy’s home for these children. It was then we came in contact with Lakshaya Changing Lives whi shared our vision of helping the most vulnerable children. Thus, we started the ‘Lakshya Udan Home’ in Siddapura, Bangalore.

With this partnership, 60 boys have been provided with comprehensive care for the past 5 years. 


E-vidyaloka is a social enterprise helping in improving the quality of education in rural schools through the use of technology. NBI was also keen on helping children studying in rural parts of Karnataka especially in Koppal and Raichur. 

We were fortunate to come across E-vidyaloka who were also keen in scaling up the model of online teaching and especially in rural parts.

In the past 4 years, this program has reached out to 1000 children in 20 schools of 25 villages.

Thus, we collaborated with E-vidyaloka in helping improve the quality of education for children studying between 5th -8th std in rural schools of Koppal, Karnataka. In the past 4 years, this program has reached out to 1000 children in 20 schools in 25 villages.
