Workshop with Aanganwari Workers


“I think I have started living my life after I attended the training”, said Alka, AWW filled with immense gratitude.
JRCT organized a three-day residential workshop with 40 AWW from across the Kangra district. The AWWs were from Rait, Nagrota Surian, Kangra and Dharamshala block. The three-day workshop included many meaningful dialogues around the work and life of AWWs. Day one was facilitated by Dr. Pritam who spoke about Aanganwadi, its role in the community, the role of AWW in the development of an infant and the centrality of AWWs role in the system as a frontline worker. The dialogue also revolved around the violence in everyday life of the workers and the need to ‘take care’ of one’s own self to be an efficient AWW. Day two was facilitated by Kamla Bhasin who built an understanding of gender in everyday life and the need for AWWs to actively work on the issues of gender. Day three say the sharing of personal experiences of violence, building perspective against victim blaming and practicing empathy.
