We run 3 daycare centers for 1-6yrs age 90 children of working poor women. Day Care Centers for Children started in 2006 with 10 children now we are supporting 90 children in slums of Kurnool. These children come from poor families where both parents work in construction sites, scavenging. During working hours of parents children play in hazardous fields. Now Children in a safe environment from morning till evening. Our care takers keeps the children engaged in learning education & provides food
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Malnutrition & lack of care for children below 6 yrs is the challenge in our area. The poverty stricken parents are busy with their work as labourers in construction sites, scavenging, beedi (tobacco) making. They are not able to provide nutritious food, personal care to their children due to poverty. These children of downtrodden sections are suffering from malnutrition, ill-health & living in un-hygienic and hazardous (open defecation) places. These Impoverished children need food & education.
How will this project solve this problem?
This program provides pre-primary education through Educational Charts, Play items, Rhymes & gives nutritious food, recreation, personal care to impoverished & malnutrition children at day care centers. The care takers look after the underprivileged children for education & build good habits enabling their parents to do their vocations satisfactorily. Care takers teach the children how to combing, bathing, proper dressing, to take safe drinking water to prevent from seasonal & dreadful diseases.
Potential Long Term Impact
The uncaring & malnutrition children of deprived sections will become useful citizens. Their parents will do their vocations satisfactorily. 90 impoverished children nutrition level increased, their health status will improve, and their behavior & good habits will be developed. Intervening during early stages of development is key to a child's long-term success. In this year, we enrolled 70 children in municipal schools, ensuring their access to education beyond our program.
