IPS-Turned-IAS Officer Spends Her Own Savings to Renovate Anganwadi School!

Singh, 2016 batch IAS officer who came here last July as district social welfare officer, spent Rs 50,000 from her own savings to adopt the anganwadi on Matwari Masjid Road in the heart of the town to develop it into the first model centre in the district.

Recognising that it is important for children to have good memories of the first place they received their education from, she decided to adopt the anganwadi in Matwari Masjid Road and transform it into the first model centre in the district.

Before December 2017, the anganwadi was a dingy structure. Now, the entire structure is freshly painted with alphabets painted on walls and a bright hoarding. Charts, learning blocks and toys have been procured to help children up to 5 years of age learn faster on the lines of a preschool.

Dedicated civil servants like Garima Sharma, who go the extra mile to make a tangible impact on the society, are the reason why people continue to have faith in the administrative system of the country.
