THE true meaning of Raksha Bandhan is to love and protect. Celebrate this month’s festival by helping Mobile Creches provide secure daycare for young children of migrant labourers at ₹2,083 per child per month.

While construction site labourers go about their daily work, care for their young children becomes crucial for their nutrition, health, education and safety.

Mobile Creches nurture these vulnerable youngsters in a secure environment and ensure that they have nutritious meals, receive education, have access to healthcare... and get lots of love and protection.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

WHY PROTECTION FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN MATTERS

The first six years of a child's life are critical for their foundational development. Being deprived during these formative years can have adverse and long-term outcomes. However, this is the fate of millions of children in India whose parents are compelled to labour for long hours, yet cannot afford proper care for their children. This vulnerability is especially heightened for migrant children at construction sites - who lack a permanent home.

Very young children require stability and love in order to flourish.
WHY DELHI-NCR

The National Capital Region has undergone rapid urbanisation for the past few decades, with construction projects in every corner. This has increased the demand for daily wage labourers, who temporarily work and live near building sites until they move to the next project. The workers, often from neighbouring states, migrate with their children, who end up living in uncertain conditions without proper care and protection through the day.

My children have found love and care here. I am glad I decided to send them to the centre.

Mobile Creches are doing wonderful work by taking care of labourers’ children who otherwise are ignored badly. Not only their education, but complete nutritional and cultural aspect and medical checks are being taken care of.

Creches are such an important service for young children. This transformation has only happened due to continuous interaction and capacity building from Mobile Creches on the young child issue.

THE PLAN

Mobile Creches are already running creches and daycare centres for children of migrant workers all over Delhi and the NCR regions. The funds raised will go towards covering the costs of education, nutrition and healthcare for six children for a year, at ₹25,000 per child.

Education, nutrition and healthcare needs are met at the creches and daycares.
