The Anganwadi Project (TAP) is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that has been designing and building ‘anganwadi’ or pre-schools for more than 10 years in the urban slums of Ahmedabad and more recently in rural villages near Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. TAP recruits and trains Australian design professionals who volunteer their skills and oversee the design and construction of these pre-schools. Since their founding in 2007, The Anganwadi Project has completed 18 anganwadis through the work of over 35 volunteer architects and designers, giving the community, and particularly the children, women and young girls, a space for their educational needs. TAP’s vision is to create simple, beautiful, sustainable and child-focused designs which are the result of a close and on-going collaboration with the local communities.
