Terming the dream project as a good learning experience, CO Tabyio thanked the village communities, the NGOs and the individual contributors who; other than the department concerned, volunteered and readily came forward to make him realize his dream of this unique project come true. He reiterated that community mobilization is of primary essence in making such projects a success.

Seemingly impressed, DC Sonal Swaroop said that the Anganwadi Centre was one of its kinds in the whole of the state. Praising the awareness and community participation, she opined that this is the best example of the communities coming together for realization of a dream.

She exhorted the BRO laborers to take advantage of the centre as it would facilitate a conducive play and learn environment for their children too and would keep them away from the hazardous work conditions.

Appreciating the Anganwadi workers and the new Arun-Kiran book which are again designed keeping in mind the various aspects of child development and local linkages, she hoped that the workers and the helpers would run the centre properly.
