Early Childhood is the foundation of the future
It is said mental, physical and emotional faculties grow rapidly in the formative years of the child. This is the time a child needs maximum care, love, nutrition, hygienic and a protective environment.
Since 2005, Aarohan has been focusing on holistic child development with different socio-economic background including underprivileged and marginalized children.
Aarohan has a unique model of “Early Childhood Care and Development” center by involving different stakeholders and extending the holistic support to the children from 2 to 5 years of age ensuring Safety, Health, Nutrition and Education.
In 2006, Aarohan has developed an Early Childcare Centre in Jagdamba Camp- a slum in South Delhi. The Centre is the first of its kind.
It not only addresses the needs of early childcare but also create awareness about the issues of strengthening the child protection as well as pre and primary education. For Aarohan, it proved as a resource centre to learn about the psyche, behavior and living conditions.
The Centre has become a learning model for other organizations to understand and learn the functioning and replicate it at other locations. This Centre has received recognition from academic and social organizations like Save the Children-Nepal, IGNOU, Manipal University, University of Alabama, University Coimbatore and DOWN Town University among others.
