2. All India Buddhist Conglomeration
Organizer: Ashoka Mission, Venue: - Ashoka Hotel, New Delhi
BJF actively participated in defining how Buddhism can positively contribute to establishing peace and harmony among religions and communities and minimizing environmental degradation and economic disparity through a non-violent, environment friendly and sustainable development model based on the principles of right livelihood.
We establish close relationships between the various Buddhist traditions and communities by sharing and exchanging knowledge and wisdom and creating a united voice against violence, injustice and immorality.
We discussed developing an interactive forum for scholars and practitioners to define collective action plans to promote peace, stability and prosperity throughout the world.
Encouraging increased dialogue between the modern scientific community and Buddhist contemplative traditions so that other means of preserving and promoting Buddhist practices and their inner sciences can be found. Based on this, bringing Mindfulness into Education will be a point of exceptional focus.

Around 1500 people across Delhi turned on the day and participated in all the three category activities of the day with great enthusiasm and zeal. The event was a great success.
Education plays a significant role in everyone's life; it can lead to innumerable heights of success. Children are the future citizens and changemakers; therefore, they should be provided with an equal platform for education.

Our main aim is to provide equal opportunity for all the deprived children because of their socio-economic status.

The NGO also provided counselling to the people regarding when and where to donate blood and how lives can be saved with just a little gesture that can go a long way. Townfolks who had to travel long distances for blood in case of urgency will surely get some relief.
Location: - Mauranipur
People say Eyes are the windows to the soul, and vision is the most important gift of god to any living being. It adds colour to life. But due to negligence, unhygienic practices and lack of awareness leads to various infections of the eyes and eventually to more prominent ailments. Cataract affects a considerable part of the population, especially the older generation.
To restrict the disease, BJF, in association with Mauranipur Jaycee, is working on the mission of proper eyesight in Mauranipur.
This Eye Camp can handle the various infections related to the eye and give immediate treatment to the patients involved. Also, the Ophthalmologists/ Eye Specialists provided advice about the care of eyes one needs to keep for healthy eyesight. Around 128 cataract operations have been performed on people who cannot afford the treatment.
