ANGANWADI(PRE-SCHOOL)

In 1975, the Government of India launched the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) to improve the health and nutrition of slum children. Currently, there are 36000 ICDS centers are in Gujarat. Manav Sadhna has joined hands with the government to run 78 ICDS centers, or Anganwadis, in the Vadaj and Sabarmati slum areas. Anganwadi is a community based program of providing Nutrition, Health and Health Awareness programs in slums. Each Anganwadi has one primary teacher and one assistant teacher. The government gives  65 paisa per Anganwadi child per day and Manav Sadhna then adds 70 paisa  per child every day in order to feed them tasty and healthy nutritional snacks. Many of our Anganwaids are adopted by various donors from different countries.  You can help and support to our Angnawadis by adopting each of Anganwadi.

Goals
Provide nutrition to underprivileged children ages 0 to 6 years.
Foster the mental, physical, and emotional development of these children.

Network between various government departments involved in the ICDS to ensure communication and a united vision.


Every day in Manav Sadhna’s Anganwadis (preschools), more than 2600  slum children age group of 3 to 6 years receive a nutritious meal twice in a day and a value-based education. In addition we provide ready to eat food   for to more then 3000 children of 6 months to 3 years of age groups. Also, more then 2500 Breast feeding mothers, Pregnant lady and adolescent girls are also gets the benefit of the ready to eat food everyday. The food  contains protein, calories and nine micro nutrients such as calcium, iron, iodine, zinc, and vitamin A.

Besides nutrition, we also provide health services and awareness programs for the communities through the Anganwadis, along with a value-based education for the children who attend the centers. The children and communities learn about values, culture, and health, hygiene, and nutrition through stories, songs, dances, and dramas as well as through field trips that expose the children to new concepts and environments. Family Planning and Vaccination are the two major programs that includes in Anganwadi.

Through the Anganwadi project, the Government of Gujarat also gives referral cards for children under 14 years old with major health problems including heart disease and kidney and liver failure. These referral cards allow the children to receive treatment for these diseases free of cost at the hospital.

Partnering with Bholu/The Anganwadi Project (TAP)

 The Anganwadi Project (TAP) designs and builds ‘anganwadi’ or pre-schools in the slum areas of Ahmedabad, India. TAP recruits and trains Australian design professionals who volunteer their time to live and work in India for 4- 6 months to oversee the design and construction of these schools. We work in partnership with  partnership with Australian based organization The Anganwadi Proejct.

In close partnership with the local community, Manav Sadhna and TAP aims to create beautiful, simple and safe spaces in which children can learn, at minimum cost. The anganwadis are constructed by local labourers and use largely re-cycled materials in order to support the Manav Sadhna philosophy of ‘Re-Use, Re-Cycle, and Reduce.’
So far, Bholu 1-12 have been completed.
