A social audit of the Anganwadi centers in every village is supposed to be an audit by the members of the society in seeing whether the Anganwadi is able to serve the people right. This is an event which takes place every six months and is widely publicized by the organizing ministry, the Integrated Child Development Services.
Designated office-bearers along with the citizens get an opportunity to walk up to the Anganwadis and audit the performance of the center over the last couple of months. A very powerful tool by the letter of the law.
However, when at Seva Setu audited the audit today, we found a different story. No audit really happens! The letter of the law is all the remains. Most Anganwadi centers were busy doing paper work related to Aadhar and ration cards. Further, we found out some centers which were not functioning at all!
Jago Ganatantra, Jago! Spread the word to make those who err sit up and notice.
We also have a detailed report on our findings which we hope to publicize. If you have ideas on how to make this go viral, please drop a comment here. Further, to read our detailed report on this, drop a comment here – happy to share it with you.
