Together We Can : The Anganwadi Story

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”  - Helen Keller

 These words of wisdom from the deaf-blind American author, activist and lecturer are so true. And we see good examples of this when we visit some exceptional schools and anganwadis (Government-run preschool centers) that receive the same level of support from the state but perform magic in that the children they serve do so well in the learning process and make their parents, teachers and communities proud. Here's one such outstanding example - The Konanakunte Anganwadi which highlights that dedicated teachers, creating classroom teaching methodologies and active community participation  can surely bring about a positive change in the learning levels of children and improve their learning environment.

Watch this beautiful video of the Konanakunte Anganwadi and it's heroes.
