A healthy and encouraging environment to little
children in their early formative years helps
bring out their best. However, very often, talented
children from economically backward families are
not given that opportunity. The Balwadi Program
was launched in the year 1972 to achieve the aim
of bringing out the best in children.
The Karnataka State Advisory
Board was giving a grant to run Anganwadi and
Balwadis and Mathruchhaya was initially monitoring
the use of the money. When the grants were discontinued,
Mathruchhaya decided to sponsor the children themselves,
so that the program was sustained and continued.
The program is for children upto 5 years of age.
