This strategic collaboration aims to implement the system-strengthening program under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS), focusing on strengthening Anganwadi centres in Sohna Block.
Along with this, the Program also entails capacity building of the Anganwadi workers, technology-based monitoring and evaluation solutions and reward and recognition to motivate the Anganwadi workers. With these combined efforts, FI aims to build a malnutrition-free Gurugram.
