Child Friendly Anganwadis
ACE was engaged by Global Communities (formerly CHF International) to design/redesign three anganwadis in villages Darekarwadi and Dhanori near Pune in Maharashtra. The goal of this project was to create safe, healthy, and child friendly anganwadis.
Specifically, the design included adequate storage, appropriate learning, play, eating, display and other activity spaces as well as spaces for examination and consultation, adult and child toilets, kitchen and storage, verandas and courtyards. Well-designed outdoor play spaces, in and around the buildings, were emphasized as they complement and enhance the performance of indoor program spaces.
