The vision of the organisation is for all children to have a nurturing and happy childhood and their mission is to promote child-friendly sites; where every child living on a construction site is safe, healthy and educated, and able to enjoy their childhood.
The founder Mrs. Meera Mahadevan set up the first Mobile Creches in 1969 as a spontaneous response to the neglected children she saw on the site of the Gandhi Centenary Exhibition in Delhi. From that rudimentary shelter, the journey began towards gaining entry into other construction sites.
They wanted to ensure basic minimum care for children of the vast migrant labour force belonging to the poorest strata of the society. In 1972, a branch was set up in Mumbai called Mobile Creches, Mumbai. From 1st April, 2007, they began separate operations as Mumbai Mobile Creches.
