औरंगाबाद जिल्ह्यातील टेकड्यांमध्ये वसलेल्या तिसगाव या नयनरम्य गावात, 1996-2000 हे वर्ष नोकरी करणाऱ्या पालकांसाठी आणि त्यांच्या लहान मुलांसाठी एका नव्या युगाची पहाट ठरले. ते वर्ष होते जेव्हा “तिसगाव पाळणाघर व संगोपन केंद्र” याचा जन्म झाला – 1 ते 6 या वयोगटातील मुलांसाठी आश्रयस्थान आणि समाजासाठी आशा आणि सक्षमीकरणाचे प्रतीक असणारे हे पाळणाघर. सत्यशोधक महिला विकास मंडळ या समर्पित स्वयंसेवी संस्थेने, अध्यक्ष विनायक गायके यांच्या नेतृत्वाखाली चालवलेले, हे पाळणाघर व संगोपन केंद्र त्याच्या कार्यकाळाच्या अनेक वर्षांच्या पलीकडे काळजी आणि समर्थनाचा वारसा निर्माण करणारे ठरले.
In the picturesque village of Tisgaon, nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Aurangabad district, the year 1996 marked the dawn of a new era for working parents and their young children. It was the year when the “Tisgaon Village Child Daycare” was born – a haven for children aged 1 to 5, and a symbol of hope and empowerment for the community. Operated by the dedicated NGO, Satyashodhak Mahila Vikas Mandal, under the leadership of President Vinayak Gaike, this daycare center would go on to create a legacy of care and support that extended far beyond its years of operation.
No, our NGO operated the day-care center as a community service, and there were no fees for parents to enroll their children
Our center was staffed by trained, qualified and compassionate caretakers who were dedicated to providing a supportive and educational environment for the children.
The center offered a range of services, including daily supervision, nutritious meals, early childhood education, and basic healthcare for the children.
The day-care center catered to children aged between 6 months to 3 years old, offering age-appropriate activities and care.
The day-care center had a significant positive impact on the community. It allowed mothers to work or attend training programs knowing their children were safe and well cared for. This, in turn, contributed to the economic empowerment of women in the village.
