One of our flagship projects, KHUSHI works towards strengthening the functionality and quality of service delivery of government’s Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Program to improve the health and well-being of children below 6 years of age with a focus from marginalised communities in Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan. The project works with over 1000 Aaganwadi centres, covering 6 blocks of two districts (Chittorgarh-Gangrar, Chittorgarh Rural, and Bhadesar and Bhilwara-Shahpura, Hurda, Suwana). The project has focused approaches to enable existing government supported systems to provide quality supervision support to field level functionaries in delivering a quality preschool education, health and hygiene program activities.
This project seeks to address the issue of insufficient school preparedness in children by developing the existing preschool support mechanism to strengthen capacity building and resource support to Anganwadi workers. In line with the specific objectives of the project- strengthening pre-school education and health status of children in age group 0 to 6 years, it focuses on enhancing the capacity of supervisors, improvement in infrastructure and monitoring attendance, retention and development of children.
The project is currently addressing the issue of insufficient school preparedness in children by transforming existing preschool support mechanism through quality capacity building of Anganwadi workers, provision of learning resources, upgrading AWCs infrastructure, parenting education and community and AWCs linkages.
