Children’s DayCare Centre - Sholinganallur (Gandhi Nagar)

DAYCARE CENTRE - SHOLINGANALLUR VILLAGE (GANDHI NAGAR)

    GandhiNagar village is in St.Thomas Mount block of Chennai District. Majority of children are from Southern Districts of Tamilnadu. There are 350 families residing in the village. Majority of parents are involved in various daily wage labour and garbage cleaning activities. Majority of the population belongs to the lowest layer in the society. They do not have enough space and facilities to provide education and schooling for children. They live in very unsafe and unhygienic locations in Gandhi Nagar.

    Rural Development Trust-RDT has promoted a Day Care Centre for such children. There are 22 children, of them 12 are boys and 10 are girls. This intervention has been creating a trajectory in the migrant population.
