Childcare centers, commonly known as Aanganbaris, seek to provide ample care to children before school. Their main aim is to take care of those children who would not be able to receive proper care at home.

Aanganbari are usually staffed by two local employees, one who manages the center (worker) and another who assists and cooks for the children (helper).  Attendance at the Aanganbari varies from day to day, but sometimes the staff is responsible for over 30 children.  Resources in the Aanganbari, such as games, toys, coloring and drawing equipment, are scarce, so your presence there and the resources you take to use and play with are eagerly and excitedly received by the children.

The childcare volunteers assist the staff and share the workload in the Aanganbari. Here the volunteer’s main responsibilities will include:

  • Improving attendance by encouraging children and parents to make use of the facility
  • Caring for children and playing games
