Model Children’s Homes

ACE along with Aangan Trust evaluated design proposals for setting up model Children’s Homes as submitted to Ministry of Women and Child Welfare by seven Indian states. ACE visited each of the proposed project sites and provided feedback to state planners on specific proposals based on site visits, and review of drawings and plans. The review made clear that the state actors needed support to construct the model homes as green and child friendly ones. ACE, in collaboration with the NGO, Aangan, and supported by UNICEF, developed a design manual to serve as a resource for builders and planners in states who must construct and plan these facilities under the aegis of the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India.

The printed manual can be obtained from the ACE Delhi office for a small donation to offset the cost of on-demand printing.
