@Ministrywcd
Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi today conferred National Awards to 97 Anganwadi workers for their exceptional achievements for the year 2017-18 in New Delhi.

The award is given to motivate the Anganwadi workers and recognize their exemplary services in the field of child development and related areas under the Integrated Child Development Services Scheme.

Expressing concern over resources provided to anganwadis not reaching children, Ms Gandhi said, resources worth crores of rupees have been wasted in the past which could have been utilized to support various child nutrition-related schemes.  She called upon Anganwadi workers to be vigilant and report any such malpractice.
