Bholu 2 is located on the main thoroughfare of the Tekra slum, in close proximity to Bholu 1. It was the first pre-school which completed in collaboration with Architects Without Frontiers. Designed by architects Jane Rothschild and Paul Tilse, this anganwadi initially had a rocky start with a change in the location of the site post-design. The initial design incorporated imaginative mural art for the children, including swinging monkeys and long-legged elephants on the walls, painted by the volunteers.
In 2011, in response to the teacher’s and children’s requirements for a larger learning area, additional storage and better security, volunteer Jesus Porres- Montesino designed a beautiful extension and renovation to Bholu 2 transforming it into a spacious, light, airy and colourful learning space which takes advantage of its freestanding site to gather sunlight and breezes.
Completed January 2008, extended in 2011 - Volunteers: Paul Tilse, Jane Rothschild, Jodie Fried, extended and renovated by Jesus Porres- Montesino
