Lok Biradari Prakalp(LBP) is a manifestation of utopian dreams of Muridhar Devidas Amte popularly known as Baba Amte. Hemalkasa is located in Bhamragad, in the Gadchiroli district in the state of Maharashtra and it is part of the Dandakarayna forest reserve. In 1975, Dr. Prakash Amte and Dr. Mandakini Amte started LBP residential ashram school with the motivation to stop exploitation and empowerment of poor tribal people. Foundation of school was laid with merely 15 students. In 1986, it was given the status of granted ashram school school. Presently, the school provides residential facility for 650 children from Balwadi to 12th standard. In addition to formal education, they provide non-formal training in bare foot doctors, bamboo craft, farming, fabrication, etc. LBP have been proven fertile ground for grooming 6 doctors, 2 lawyers, and 250 teachers from Madia tribal community. The accepted budget is around 12000 CHF per year. Asha Zurich is funding for residential activities of 100 children at LBP. The project is running since June 2011. This year Asha Zurich conducted five weltmarkets with LBP as theme for all funds raised through them.
