Each village in India has an Anganwadi. It’s a government institution where especially the small malnourished kids get lunch. Since more than two years we provide fruits for the kids – so in addition to the lunch they get a banana, apple, orange, mango – whatever is in season. On average 35 children come there every day.
Right in front of the Anganwadi is a huge open public space. Unfortunately the locals drop all their garbage there. It stinks and looks like a mess. The water pump adds to the mess – it’s surrounded by a large puddle, a paradise for mosquito flies and source for all kind of infections.
Finally we decided to clean up the entire place. It was a common effort. We filled it up with miti (mud), laid out stones, built a small “nala” for the effluent water, installed dust bins and educated the people. Let’s see where it leads!
