Case story notifying impact:
Ever since the Kaverinagar Anganawadi centre in Bengaluru, India was inaugurated 10 years ago, it hasn’t received a new coat of paint. Under the Born Learning Campaign and with the support of donors and Global Giving, the walls were repainted and murals with educative themes were painted. Minor repair work on windows and the main door were also completed.
Laila, the teacher at the anganwadi was extremely happy with the new look and ambience, “I am extremely happy with the new look of the anganwadi. The children are happy too and look forward to coming to the Anganwadi now. The community members and mothers too have expressed their appreciation. We wish to thank United Way Bengaluru for their generosity”.
