Every Child’s Sleep Gives a Big Dream in India
Mobile Crèches was established in Delhi 1969 by two women – Meera Mahadevan and Devika Singh. They began by running crèches for children at construction sites which enabled parents to work securely in the knowledge that their children were being well cared for. This was followed by a school for older children and adult literacy for the parents and expansion to other cities. The programme now includes medical check-ups, immunisation, nutrition and hygiene. Over the last 50 years, Mobile Creches have touched the lives of almost a million children and trained thousands of crèche workers.
