Kavita, appointed as an Anganwadi Worker under Integrated Child Development Scheme in September, 2014, travels everyday from Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh to Nardan Basti and gives children a healthy start to life.
Introducing kitchen gardens in anganwadis in Chhattisgarh is an initiative that will be an effective step towards addressing malnutrition in one of the poorest states of the country. This has greatly boosted the morale of the anganwadi workers working in the region where the situation of malnutrition is worrying. In a bid to provide fresh and healthy food to children and expectant mothers, anganwadis in remote areas of Gariyaband and Korba district have set up kitchen gardens in their backyards. Child supportand welfare are the prime objectives for any anganwadi.
