ALL children need love, care and protection - including those born to destitute parents who work as labour on construction sites. Help provide these to 20 young children in a daycare centre for a year.
MC provide childcare services six days a week, eight hours a day, at construction sites and urban slums. Besides providing a safe haven for minors, MC also focus on nutrition, health, hygiene, education, and community awareness. This includes health check-ups, immunisations, vitamin and mineral supplementation, meals designed to combat malnourishment, personal and environmental hygiene, and early stimulation and learning. ₹2,083 will support one migrant child for a month.
MC believe that childcare workers and other caregivers are central to ensuring quality care, which is dependent on their skills, knowledge, attitude, and motivation. Thus, MC work to ensure that mothers, families, childcare workers, government functionaries, NGO personnel, funding agencies, and policymakers are oriented and provided basic skills-building opportunities so children receive timely quality care for their development. ₹4,000 will remunerate one childcare worker for a week.
THROUGH community-based advocacy and engaging with state actors, MC and their network partners work to influence policies to ensure foundational rights for all children under six. They collaborate with sectors such as nutrition, education, maternity entitlements, social protection, labour rights, child protection and others to advocate for a young child's right to early childhood care and development. ₹1,600 will cover the costs of one creche campaign activity in a community for a month.
I used to come to the centre to drop my child or pick him up, that’s all. After many interactions with the staff and participation in information sessions, I've understood the importance of a child's early years. Now, I build awareness in the community.
MC’s focus on the young child at construction sites reminds us to remain invested in developing the future citizens of our nation. We look forward to expanding our partnership at many locations so more of our customers become a part of this journey.
Earlier, I had no idea about creches. This training is going to help me a lot in my work … and has helped me to develop a different perspective towards child care.
