“Kawajhar’s main area falls about 2km from here, so our children face difficulty going to the anganwadi center there. Someday they go and someday they don’t”, says mother of one kid from Dindori district, Maltikra tola, Madhya Pradesh, where there is no anganwadi center for kids.
As there is no anganwadi in Maltikra tola, the kids play whole day and don’t get to learn anything. The people are concerned as their children can’t go everyday 2km away to learn.
On 7th February 2013, people filled an application to the village council regarding opening an anganwadi center in their village but no action has been taken yet by the authorities.
