Laxmi Lanse an Anganwadi worker has been entrusted by her community to take of their children at the local anganwadi (child care centre). She does her best to give the children a pre-school education with the limited resources she has at hand.
Her biggest fear at this moment is that the anganwadi building may collapse on them in the middle of the day. IndiaUnheard Community Correspondent Ramjag Gaud reports from Hatkachora Village, Chhattisgarh.
"In the past I've repaired it with my own money, but this year it looks really bad. The entire place is falling apart", she says pointing at a gaping hole in the ceiling now home to a bird's nest.
Help Laxmi ensure that the children are given a safe structure to spend the day learning and having fun.

: Please call Mr. CR Jaiswal, the Municipality Chairperson on 0942466001 and ask him to ensure the building is repaired.
