SERUDS Creche Program : Day Care Centers for Children
SERUDS is a non-government organization (NGO) in India working for the welfare of poor and vulnerable children in Andhra Pradesh, India apart from women, elders and youth. Children of poor families, where both parents go out to work are the most vulnerable. Their food, education and health needs are neglected.
Seruds started its first child welfare program in 2003 with 10 children living in slums. Today we support 180 children, between the age of 1 year to 6 years, from slums and villages around Kurnool district through 6 creche or daycare centers. These children come from poor families where both parents work as construction or farm laborers. During work day, they are unable to take care of their children. Thanks to Seruds daycare centers, they are able to leave their kids in a safe environment, from morning till evening. The children are provided hot mid-day meals, snacks in evening, and pre-school education. Our trained staff keeps the children engaged in recreational and learning activities.
