Abstract

Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) scheme is one of the most important schemes having a direct thrust on the development of services for early childhood. The focal point for activity of ICDS at the village level are the anganwadi operation and developmental services. Involvement of community people in the programme has been the major recommendations of previous researches. For this strategies were planned and implemented in the four villages of district Udham Singh Nagar, Uttaranchal, India. Supplementary feeding was provided to children, pregnant and lactating mothers daily. After intervention of strategies, it was found that at pre level community participation in old and proposed ICDS anganwadi center was only 25 and 30 per cent respectively. While at post level, community participation in old ICDS anganwadi center increased at 50 per cent and in proposed anganwadi center it was 65 per cent. So, it can be concluded that if people are made aware about the facilities of the programme and motivated to participate in the activities, the programme can be made more effective.
