Uddhaar - Enriching kids' lives by revamping Anganwadis
*The visual content above is for representational purpose and may not correspond to this project.
There are about 500 Anganwadi day care centers in Chandigarh run by the government, but most of them lack basic facilities, especially learning materials and games for early childhood education. Even mats (or daris) on which these children sit, eat, play, and study were found to be too thin and torn in most of the surveyed centers, causing injury to some children and creating an unhygienic environment for all kids. Most kids in most surveyed centers were also found to be malnourished and weak. The condition of these centers is below average and is in need of a serious intervention.
Bharat Prakarsh Foundation has identified 10 such centers and will revamp their basics by providing them with high quality 'daris' and education material i.e. books and toys to make learning fun for these children who come from impoverished homes where parents are engaged in a struggle for survival. Along with this, they shall be provided with cupboards and digital weighing scales.
The children in these Anganwadis would benefit through proper ECE (early childhood education) material which would help in building a better society. Moreover, the digital weighing scales will help in keeping a proper weight record for these children, and ensuring they are healthy. Weighing scales will also help in guiding the mothers on a nutritious diet. Children deserve a good day-care environment and this model would provide equity to these underprivileged children.
