This initiative began in September 2011 in the shanty colony of Chimbel, in association with Assistencia – Goa. From 2016 onwards the Centre has been supported by ‘Children across Borders.’
Besides being a secure place for working mothers to keep their children, KDS envisioned a place where children would be provided with an atmosphere to learn social skills, develop language skills and creativity through various cognitive and aesthetic activities.
30 little girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 5 years have a morning filled with age relevant activities, including a nutritious mid morning snack, which they enjoy! The Parents of these children, who are domestic workers and labourers, are secure in the knowledge that their little ones are well looked after and are being taught and groomed for entry into formal Schools.
