Project Description

Healthy children and empowered women will eradicate poverty and malnutrition, and make a prosperous nation. Nandghars are a network of Modern Anganwadis designed to address the challenges faced by the network of 13.7 lakh Anganwadis in India. The Model reimagines the existing Anganwadi Network present across the country and enhances the role of Anganwadi in the community.

Government Convergences

Vedanta has signed a MoU with the Ministry of Women and Child Development to construct 4000 Nand Ghars across India.

Nandghar project is in line with Hon. Prime Minister's flagship schemes: Swacch Bharat, Beti Pachao Beti Padhao and Startup India by equipping Nand Ghars with televisions for e-learning, solar panels for reliable power, safe drinking water and clean toilets and empowering women by making them entrepreneurs.


The infrastructure is being utilized in the morning time for children's education and in the afternoon for skill development of women. The Nand Ghar centre daily provides:

  • Pre-school education to children (3-6 years) through e-learning, BaLA designs and smart kits.
  • Nutrition through pre-cooked nutritious meals to children, pregnant and lactating women.
  • Healthcare through Mobile Health Van and support to Community Health Centre.
  • Women empowerment through Skill, credit linkage and entrepreneurship development.
