New Delhi: The Indian subsidiary of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, Goodyear India, has joined hands with Plan India, a child centered community development organisation, to support their cause for children welfare in Delhi and Mumbai. It will be done through Plan India’s “Early Childhood Care Development Centers” (ECCDs) in both the cities.

As a result of this collaboration, many children in Delhi and Mumbai will be benefited by recieving proper immunisations. Also, they will have a regular health check-up under this campaign. Furthermore, ECCDs in both the cities will provide hundreds of children with proper food and nutrition according to their age through regular meals.

Early Childhood Care Development Centers provide the children of construction labourers with a safe and secure environment where they get quality learning. They also offer counselling to the parents on several subjects such as pre-natal/post-natal care, child feeding practices, hygienic living and immunisation. Moreover, the organisation also helps the parents in admission of their children in government schools.

Rajeev Anand, vice chairman & managing director of Goodyear in India, said: “With growth of infrastructure and development activities in urban areas, there are large numbers of labourers moving to our major cities. In many cases, they come with their families and children from rural areas and reside in temporary housing near the construction sites where it can sometimes be difficult to access services in healthcare and education. We chose to partner with Plan India for this project as they have over 10 years of experience and an excellent record in early childhood care and development approaches for children living in and around construction areas in India.”

Bhagyashri Dengle, executive director, Plan India, said: “Early childhood encompasses the period of development from pre-natal through the transition from home or ECCD centre into the early primary grades. It includes health, nutrition, education, social science, economics, child protection and social welfare. The ECCDs strives to ensure young children’s overall well-being during the early years. Plan aims to improve holistic care for the development of children between 0-6 years at home and in centers by strengthening the government systems and structures as well as building capacities of parents and communities.”
