One key work during fellowship

  • Poor health and learning outcome in ICDS centres due to ignorance and resource crunch

What was done:

  • Took the initiative to develop the Model ICDS Centre using Building as Learning Aid (BALA) method all over the 11 LWE blocks under IAP, later renamed as ACA.
    Made 33 model ICDS centre along with Children’s Park by using a standard model plan in convergence with MGNREGA, Horticulture, Agriculture and Social Welfare dept.


  • Children are now spending whole day at centre and health standards is improved across the district
    The project has been shared at state level as well as national level and other districts are replicating this model.
