There is a strong evidence pointing to women's work and income - women with access to daycare earned at least 50% more. I am glad to join hands with PVR NEST and North Delhi Municipal Corporation.

Ms. Nishtha Satyam

(Deputy Country Representative UN Women, India)

Aanchal Childscapes is a brilliant move to provide better educational and nutritional facilities and protection from crime for children of working mothers of disadvantaged section.

Mr. Anil Baijal

(Lieutenant Governor of Delhi at the launch of PVR NEST’s Aanchal Childscapes programme)

We have identified 10 schools which are in the different zones of North MCD. In these schools we will be providing the space and one community worker each so that basic requirement of staffing is look after. We are very fortunate that PVR NEST has decided to partner with us.

Ms. Varsha Joshi

(Commissioner North Delhi Municipal Corporation )

Aanchal Childscapes is the kind of place that is going to protect our children from all kinds of abuse while their parents are away for work. Congratulations to PVR NEST, North MCD, and other partners who are a part of the whole process of making this initiative possible.

Ms. Bharti Ali

(Head, Centre for Child Rights, HAQ)

I would like to congratulate PVR NEST, Plan India and Centre 4 Youth for organizing such an impressive program on youth incubation for seeding innovative and green solutions that will lead India to achieve its Sustainable Development Goals.

Mr. Amitabh Kant

(CEO, NITI Aayog)

Businesses and the Government should work in coherence, such collaborations and programs focus on harnessing the power of collective will to support and launch a generation of problem solvers who will innovate like mavens, think like entrepreneurs and act as social change agents.

H.E. Ms. Harinder Sidhu

(Australia’s High Commissioner, India )

The youth of today is extremely conscious of prevalent issues that plague the environment, most particularly air pollution and waste management. This partnership (Eco Grants with PVR NEST) aims to create awareness and dialogue on the Sustainable Development Goals and embed sustainable development skills in young people.

Ms. Bhagyashri Dengle

(Executive Director, Plan International (India Chapter) )

I am encouraged to witness PVR NEST’s ECO Grants initiative. In India, more organizations need to commit and invest in long-term sustained vision for solving environmental and other social issues that help them become drivers of change for sustainable societies.

Mr. Rahul Bose

(Actor and Social Activist)

With increasing women and girls’ footfall in the capital city every day, it is vital to ensure that accessing hygienic toilets with sanitary napkins and facilities for their safe disposal is not a challenge. We are confident that together with organizations such as NCPCR, DCPCR, DWCD and PVR NEST, we will achieve our goal.

Ms. Kamaljeet Sehrawat

(Mayor, SDMC)

It is crucial to provide clean toilet spaces for improving hygiene and health conditions for women and adolescent girls. Such an initiative (Pink Toilets) will not only provide privacy and facility to dispose of through incinerators which is highly needed but shall also end the practice of open defecation leading to better safety of women and girls.

Ms. Stuti Kacker

(Chairperson, NCPCR)

I am extremely happy to be a part of the celebration on ‘social inclusion’ and the launch of project Eklavya. I congratulate PVR NEST and Indus Action on developing an innovative, sustainable model for effective implementation of Right to Education and assure my support for Project Eklavya.

Ms. Sanjna Kapoor

(Co-Founder, Junoon Theatre Group)

Through initiatives like project Eklavya (facilitating school admissions vide RTE Act 2009), we are hopeful to expand the benefits of government policies to a larger section of under-catered groups in the society. It feels immensely good, to be a part of this occasion which reiterates the philosophy of community development through just and inclusive education.

Mr. Tarun Cherukuri

(Co-Founder, Indus Action)

For the first time an urban governance body North MCD and a private organisation PVR have come together to recognise the importance of Crèches and Day Care Centres for young children in the city of Delhi. Aanchal Childscapes has a huge potential as a model for others to take the idea, replicate and run it for marginalised children.

Ms. Sumitra Mishra

(Executive Director, Mobile Creches)

In Aanchal Childscapes, we have children from 6 months to 12 years being protected, their nutrition, education and especially safety is taken care of. The Idea of Aanchal Childscapes is to have a holistic model which caters to all the developmental needs of children at one place.

Ms. Ira Singhal

(Deputy Commissioner, North Delhi Municipal Corporation)
