Little Mary Finds A Home With Baal Dan

Truly a citizen of the world, Baal Dan founder Tanya Pinto was born in India, raised in Dubai and Australia, and then moved to Dallas, Texas.

In 2006, she started “Baal Dan” (which means “Donation to Children”), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest children. Her efforts have aided girls like “Little Mary,” an orphan found wandering the streets. The four-year-old was battered and bleeding. The child also was suffering from TB and HIV positive.

Today, Mary’s going to school, living with other girls, and her TB is cured and her HIV is stabilized.

Through Tanya’s efforts, and those of countless volunteers, Baal Dan has provided aid to more than 3,000 children like Mary.

To learn more about Baal Dan’s efforts to help these street children receive homes and an education, visit the Gifts That Give More page at The Literacy Site.

In coming years, Pinto plans to expand Baal Dan , taking the organization's commitment of providing education as a means to break the cycle of poverty worldwide.
