Mangal Diwas Yojana: Transforming Anganwadis into Joyful Tuesdays

The Madhya Pradesh Mangal Diwas Yojana transforms Anganwadi centres from mere government offices into centres of joy and empowerment. Run by the Women and Child Development Department, the scheme is celebrated on the first Tuesday of every month with special programmes for pregnant women, mothers, children and community members. Let’s find out how Tuesday becomes a day of joy:

Every Tuesday, A New Celebration

  • First Tuesday: Joy of Godh Bharai: A baby shower event for pregnant women, providing nutritional advice and tips to stay healthy during pregnancy.
  • Second Tuesday: Sweet Welcome of Annaprashan: A ceremony for six-month-old babies, in which mothers are informed about the nutritional requirements of children.
  • Third Tuesday: Bal Chaupal – A confluence of games and learning: Creating a learning environment through games, focusing on the physical and mental development of children.
  • Fourth Tuesday: Laalima Day – A strong bond between mothers and children: Emphasizing the importance of breastfeeding and providing information on postpartum care.
  • Fifth Tuesday (every three months): Suposhan Diwas – Laying the foundation of a healthy future: Awareness programs to overcome nutritional deficiencies, and distributing nutritious food to children and pregnant women.

Role of Anganwadi Workers

The success of this scheme mainly goes to the Anganwadi workers. These women organize Mangal Diwas programs at Anganwadi centers every Tuesday and connect with the community. They are entrusted with the task of spreading awareness, giving health advice and providing information about government schemes. Anganwadi workers are the backbone of this initiative.

Community Participation – The Foundation of Empowerment

The Madhya Pradesh Mangal Diwas Yojana can be successful only with the active participation of the community. The presence of pregnant women, mothers, children and families is essential in the Tuesday programs. Gram Pradhan, ASHA workers and other respected persons can also strengthen this scheme with their participation.

Future Plan

The Madhya Pradesh Mangal Diwas Yojana is an ongoing initiative. More programs can be included in the future, such as:

  • Discussion on healthy lifestyle for adolescent girls
  • Awareness campaign against child marriage and the dowry system
  • Focusing on the health of elderly women

The inclusion of these programs will increase the scope of the scheme, benefiting all social sections.
