Mr. Kantilal Parmanand Unnadkat was the youngest of five children born in Fort-Ternan in Kenya on 15th August, 1933. Finding themselves abandoned after the death of his father, Unnadkat, his mother and siblings faced terrible hardships and poverty. Despite all this, he remained determined and hoped for a miracle that would change his life. Thanks to incredible generosity and love from local charities, he was able to get through school and college and went on to do very well in life.
In 1973, he moved to the UK with his mother, wife and children, and started his own company that grew to be hugely successful. And he promised that, one day, he would dedicate his life to giving back to the community that helped him become the man he is today.
Fulfilling that promise, Mr. Kantilal Paramanand Unnadkat sold his company and started the Bhaarat Welfare Trust, India Aid, a Britain-based NGO whose sole aim is to raise funds for those in need in India.
BWT was founded by an individual whose dream was to ensure that no one is deprived of food, shelter or an education. We are driven by the belief that everyone can make a difference. Together, as a team, we can bring change by sharing what we have with those in need. We strive to bring dramatic changes in the lives of the poor of India.
Our mission is to provide a medium to effectively channel funds by offering donors a choice of causes to support in India.
We never give in to those who think that big changes are impossible. We are committed to being completely honest and ethical and our donors are always kept informed about where their money goes, and the difference that their donations are making.
