Project 2: Anganwadi Extended Hours

Project Leads: Shreya Guddeti, Shailey Guddeti

Team Members: Shreya Guddeti, Shailey Guddeti, Grama Volunteer (government appointed volunteer for the village welfare)

Goal: The goal is to raise money to be able to expend a monthly cost in order to extend the time that the preschool is open so that the kids are not home alone and older kids can go to school instead of staying home to care for their baby siblings.

Project Description: Once again, Anganwadi is a government provided preschool for kids ages 2.5-5. This particular location is Dorakottala. This location opens at 9am and closes at 3pm, but the work hours for many families usually extends to 5:30pm or 6pm. This causes the children to be home alone and older children not being able to go to school in order to care for their younger siblings. The money raised would go towards paying an adult and the facility in order to stay open for 3 extra hours, every work day.
Monthly cost: $4
