Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday rolled out nearly 1,000 model Anganwadi centers constructed across the state and said 15,000 such units would be constructed by 2026.
Inaugurating a center at the main program held at the RB Higher Secondary School playground under Palasbari Assembly constituency, Sarma said that these model Anganwadi centers will fulfill the hopes and aspirations of parents living in the remotest parts of the state.
“Anganwadis are centers where physical and mental foundations of a child are built. It prepares the child for their journey towards the higher education system,” the chief minister said. It is very important that there is proper infrastructure in place to take forward the Anganwadi system in the state, he added.

“It is with this in mind that we started the project of constructing model Anganwadi centers across the state. I appeal to all parents to enroll their eligible wards in these model centers,” Sarma said.
Building an Anganwadi center should be considered as important as constructing a new medical or engineering college as it is from these centers that doctors and engineers of tomorrow will emerge, Sarma said. The chief minister also launched the ‘Adopt an Anganwadi’ portal, aimed at providing philanthropists, non-governmental organizations, and citizens concerned with a platform through which they can contribute to the welfare of the society by adopting full or partial expenses of an Anganwadi center. .
