Facilitators appointed through our Born Learning programme are trained to transform the community around Anganwadis.
One of our facilitators identified a family in the vicinity of an Anganwadi in the heart of Chennai who hadn’t been sending their daughters to school. She, along with a member from the mothers’ committee regularly interacted with the family to make sure they understood the importance of educating their children. Now the family’s 9 year old elder child goes to school and the younger 4 year old child has been enrolled in the Anganwadi.
Through our Born Learning programme, we appoint facilitators who not only handhold the teachers but also empower the community to take ownership of their locality’s Anganwadi.
For us at United Way Chennai, it is not about numbers. Every family in the community counts! #UnitedByStories
