The govt of Odisha and International Grant Making Organisation Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) have come together to improve opportunities for young children in the state. Odisha govt and the Hague based organisation have signed two memorandums of understanding (MoUs) which have stated objective of making life better for the children aged 1-8 years with social and economic disadvantage. As part of one MoU, BvLF will invest 1.5 million and work along with the Women and Child Development Department for 2016-19 to incorporate best practices in field tested model of mother tongue based early childhood education in 6,681 anganwadi centres catering to 2,50,000 children in 12 tribal districts of State.
