With the increased convent culture, the Anganwadis are struggling for their existence. The Anganwadis are known for dirt and disorder. The Anganwadis were mentioned either for the mismanagement or for the remuneration of the Anganwadi workers. But in Nagpur district the Anganwadis are shedding their skin.
At present more than 90 have received an ISO certifications. Nagpur district has 2,161 Anganwadis and 262 mini Anganwadis. Out of these Anganwadis, the workers there are struggling to transform the Anganwadis. Thanks to their efforts, more than 90 Anganwadis got ISO rating. For getting the rating, few workers raised public funds and by using the funds along with their own savings they transformed the Anganwadis.
Apart from the transformation of the Anganwadi building, these Anganwadis are providing service to the kids, pregnant women, feeding mothers, adolescent girls, providing them nutritious food and also complete vaccinations. After applying for ISO certificate, the concerned committee inspects the Anganwadi in three steps.
In first step the committee inspects the building, in second round they check the nutritious food provided to the beneficiaries and in last round they check the records. After satisfying all these criteria the committee gives ISO certificate. The ISO certified Anganwadis have provided healthy and entertaining atmosphere to the kids, maintained hygiene and kept the Anganwadi in good condition.
The walls of the Anganwadi were made informative which were coloured with alphabets, numbers and pictures. These Anganwadis have toys for kids, clean kitchen and clean drinking water. The Anganwadis also have charts giving information about malnutrition, nutritious food and health related information for adolescent girls and feeding mothers.
