Support livelihood for women living in construction sites


From being scared and shy, Radha becomes a confident teacher to help children

"The teacher training has equipped me with all the right skills. I am now a bold and confident person and am proud to be earning for my family" - Radha.

Radha is 23 years old. She belongs to the Nanded district in Maharashtra.

She got married in 2009. She and her husband moved to Mumbai in search of better livelihood opportunities.

Her husband began to work as a daily wage construction worker while she stayed home.

One day she attended a meeting conducted by Mumbai Mobile Creches at the site where her husband worked. She came to know about their one-year training program. It was about early childhood care and education.

She realized that this was an excellent opportunity. Radha enrolled herself for the 1-year intensive training organized by Mumbai Mobile Creches.

While the decision to enroll was easy, it was a struggle for her to continue the year-long training. She was a shy and scared person. She had never stepped outside of her community alone. She was not confident about traveling alone to the training center.

Initially, she insisted on her husband accompanying to the training every day. Through the course, she developed into a more confident person. She overcame the fear of traveling alone in the city. She was determined to complete the course.

Radha is now a teacher. She works passionately towards educating children, giving them wings and helping them achieve their dreams.

She has created her own identity and is enabling others to develop their own.

Women like Radha, with training and support, can create their own identity and be equal contributors to their family's income. You can also help poor women like Radha be employed and become financially independent. This support can help many poor children get access to a safe creche while their parents work. You can give with confidence because every program listed is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Mumbai Mobile Creches provide safe and caring shelters for young children of women working at construction sites. They also provide women with an alternate source of stable employment.

Donation to this program contributes to a fund that covers a part of the cost of the creche teachers' salary.

The creche caretakers or teachers as they are called are the most valuable asset on construction sites. They take care of the children, teach them as well as keep the center running. 30% of the teachers are from construction worker community.

Their incredible multi-tasking is what keeps the centers smoothly. Their dedication and enthusiasm is what allows the children to learn and engage with our programme.

All the teachers either go through the Mumbai Mobile Creches' comprehensive teacher training program - Bal Palika or any other reputed training program. The teachers implement all aspects of the program. The teachers are the foundation of Mumbai Mobile Creches. They help in reaching out to every need of the children on the site.

All children in the age group of birth to 14 years living on construction sites where the daycare centers exist are welcome to attend their daycare programs.

There are currently 18 centers across Mumbai. Over 1,00,000 children have been taken care of by the Mumbai Mobile Creches in the past 40 years. Between 900 to 1000 children are taken care of by the centers on an average day.

When you donate to this program you will aid in the continuous running of the creches in an effective and sustainable manner.

About The NGO

Mumbai Mobile Creches
Mumbai Mobile Creches Logo
Mumbai Mobile Creches

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.
