In collaboration with CRY, the organization has established Aangawaadi Centres in the state of Jharkhand. There are total 19 Anganwadi centres operating in two panchayats, Katiya and Meerganj of the Project area. Since the establishment of these centers, the organization is dedicated towards providing supplementary nutrition for better nutritional and health status of children. Besides, Child Development and Pre-School Education are other core responsibilities of the organization.
During the recent past, the regular stay of 90 percent children in 14 centres has been ensured. The stay of children at the center which is 10% more than the previous year was possible due to the willingness of the Organization, Mata Samiti and the active participation of our staffs, Assessing children under Meri Patrika proved to be a good tool for Children’s stay.
The reorganization of the Mata Samiti was made active at all the 19 centers by conducting regular capacity building meetings regarding the work and responsibilities of the Samiti members. Parents also took interest and they have started sending their children to the center, which increased the attendance rate.
