The program has been extended to 6 circles (including two old circles) of Dharwad block in the April to June quarter. These circles cover 163 Anganwadis centre which serves around 4600 children.

A lot of background work was done before extending the program to these circles. Supervisors were consulted for understanding the conditions of these centres and extensive interactions were held with the CDPO which helped in getting clarity during the selection process. The discussion with CDPO helped us in zeroing upon the centres which were in the maximum need of intervention for increasing the learning level of children. Such centres were finally selected for the program implementation.

This was also approved by Deputy Director Smt. H. Kukunoor (Navilgunda CDPO, in charge DD) who was also briefed on the earlier interventions in the field of ECCE in Dharwad. She was also told of the 15-year long experience that Prajayatna has in working with the Anganwadis. She issued a letter to the CDPO asking him to start the program in the selected centres of the 6 circles.
