This project is a government supported scheme called “Rajiv Gandhi National Crèche Scheme” or ‘Day Care Centre’ for the children of working slum parents.
Children between 1-5 years old are enrolled in this centre whose both parents are going for labor work and nobody is there to look after the kid. Total 6 Crèches are running in as many slums of Bhubaneswar where more than 150 children are taken care of by two Teachers.
They are served supplementary nutrition and basic education through action songs, dance, and story-telling methods.
After the child completes five year, our teachers enroll them in formal school by motivating the parents. Regular follow ups are being done to check the drop outs from schools.
