Every year before the commencement of a new session we select women from the community for meeting the nutritional needs of the children who make food for the Balwadi kids. They are designated as Balwadi assistants.
This year also we followed the same tradition and called up women from the community to showcase their culinary skills which can steal away children’s heart by making mouth watering food and at the same time maintain the nutritional value of the food.
12 members from eight different SHG participated in this event. These SHG’s operate in the same areas where our Balwadis are running. Each member presented three item of food as sample of their aptness for the position.
To assess the quality and taste of food; a five member panel was constituted which included Mr Nirmal Ahuja (Unit Head Health), Ms. Kushala Shetty ( Head HR and Admin.), Mr. Vikas Gaikwad ( Program Officer Balwadi Project) and two external member from MAVIM (Mahila Aarthik Vikas Mahamandal).
The lucky ones to sign the contract will hear from us in next 10 days.
Mumbai Smiles appreciates the effort of all the women who participated in this event!!!
