Day Care Center

Aangan- Day Care Centre

A day care centre situated at Jama Masjid. It is program where 40 children gather every morning under a roof to be, very simply put, a “child”. The children here spend the night on the streets and as such Jamghat’s aim was to provide, for at least the majority of the day, an environment with basic amenities and healthcare, a place where they can feel safe while also receiving formal and non- formal education. Group activities are also conducted to foster a sense of companionship amongst their own self.

Aangan functions 6 times a week between 10 am and 6 pm. Volunteer interaction is quite high here and various workshops and sessions on a wide array of topics ranging from HIV, Sexual Abuse, Art and Theatre and Cricket and Movie Outings are organized.

Doctors from Max India Foundation come to provide professional medical assistance to the children every month. Through this centre, we are also in touch with the community and try to spread awareness through street plays, regular interactions and night walks.

Education has been a very important tool in empowering these children. Our educators provide regular non-formal education in the centre to all children. We also try to enrol regular children in public schools as well as National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS).

Our very own kitchen in this centre, started in 2012, with the help of our friends & supporters, has enabled us in providing three meals every day to our children attending the centre. Own kitchen has ensured healthy, tasty and hygienic food right on time and adequate in amount.
