Project Description

CAST has been running nursery schools (day care centers) for children under five in ten villages in the area for several years now. ASHA Berkeley learnt about this project through one of its members, Anand Pandian who visited the project in Summer 1997. ASHA supported five of the ten nursery schools in the year 1997-1998: those at Pathai, Nalantheru, Pottal, Thiruviruthanpulli, and Chidambarapuram villages. The project came up for renewal in 1998 after a site visit by Anand Pandian. It was funded for the period of 1998-1999, 1999-2000, and 2000-2001. The project is currently an Asha-Stars project. Contact one of the Asha-Stars if you wish to join the team.
