Mobile Creches has raised enough to provide daycare for 20 migrant children for a month.
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.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.
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.
We raised enough to support 20 migrant children at our daycare centre. With their parents working hard as construction labourers, the children at our daycare centre often do not receive a proper education or adequate medical care, which is what the funds raised are going towards. We are also provide them with nutritious meals, fun activities, and occasionally take them out on field trips.
