“Working with TAP was transforming in so many ways. It actually reminded me why I chose to study Architecture in the first place and has fundamentally changed the way I think about it”. Karen Erdos (TAP volunteer)
The Anganwadi Project would not be possible without the passionate, talented and dedicated volunteers who donate their time and professional skills to make this project happen. Their involvement is critical to creating such a special learning place, brightening the lives of the anganwadi children and families.

‘I was not prepared for the thoughtfulness and generosity of the local people. This made the experience far more meaningful and gave us the momentum to create a beautiful space.’ Caroline Kite
‘The local community gave this project a life far beyond my expectations. Since its inauguration, the space has become much more than the modest Anganwadi. It has become a voice for the community.’ Evan Drage
‘These projects have not just been about a building, but about strengthening a community through dedication to a project and love.’ Ciara Tapia
‘It is these relationships and the tremendous support of the TAP team that have taught us the importance of giving and the impact architecture can make on communities. We now understand the slum not as an abstract idea and unfamiliar context but as a reality; a neighbourhood of families surviving and living their lives.’ Kali Marnane
