Village Balwadis & Boarding Hostels

Village Balwadis

The Balwadi is a pre-primary center for the children of the village. In addition to enrolling the children in the education system early, they also serve as a day-care center, thereby allowing the parents to go to work without exposing the children to that environment. There are more than 2500 children currently enrolled in the Balwadis that are run by the various religious organizations within the Archdiocese of Gandhinagar.
