Primarily our association is with the Anganwadis and Ashramshalas, we have a history of initiating mini anganwadis in many hamlets where there were lesser then 30 children. We created a model, which was later integrated to the ICDS programs which does not focus only on mid day meals and nutirion, but also quality primary education. Also we work on health education and awareness in the loacl schools. Sessions on mental health, malnutrition, hygiene and sanitation are conducted periodically in schools. Also training program for teachers on communication and early identification of mental retardation and disability are conducted periodically and also they are well aware about referrals.
