Aanganwadis are almost always run out of rented spaces from peoples homes. The rent that is provided by the government is inadequate, particularly for areas like Nizamuddin which are centrally located in metropolitan cities.
This results in aanganwadis being in run in less than adequate spaces with poor ventilation, or the space being used by the family as well and usually no toilet facilities.
The project intervened by improving some spaces that were identified by the community through its housing improvement programme, shifting out aanganwadis out of some very unsuitable spaces and subsidising some spaces.
