On May 1st, we opened the “Mantra Essence” Center, a new Day Care Center for Migrant Children in Pune, in collaboration with Mantra construction company. Twenty-three children, the daughters and sons of construction workers, are attending so far. They receive nourishment, healthcare and health prevention services, non-formal education and are cared for in a safe environment. The Day Care Centers protect children in an educational and caring space while their parents work.
Regular awareness workshops are held for families where issues related to children’s rights, health prevention and nutrition are addressed.
Counting the new Mantra Essence Center, we already have 13 Day Care Centers in Pune, where more than 400 children are catered to.
