Mumbai Mobile Creches – Graduated Partner, 2009
Founded as a Trust
Functioning since 1969
Mumbai Mobile Creches supports the health, education and safety of children living on construction sites throughout Mumbai. They set up classrooms on construction sites to serve the children of migrant labourers, who grow up on construction sites and rarely have the opportunity to attend school or enjoy the other facets of a regular childhood. Mumbai Mobile Crèche’s’ mission is to promote “child-friendly” construction sites where every child living on a construction site is safe, healthy and educated, and able to enjoy their childhood.
Currently in its 40th year, the organisation has reached over 150,000 through 30 centres. While their focus remains on child care, MMC has strengthened their advocacy work in order to address the myriad of socio-economic challenges faced by children and families on construction sites.
“All the Atma volunteers placed with us were bright, dedicated individuals who threw themselves into their work. They were a great support and continue to be our friends today.”
