How does your innovation work?
The project will create a enhanced curriculum for early childhood development using a tailored family-centered approach. The use of a tablet/PC-based smart register will enable staff to track child progress and optimize health service utilization. The public-private partnership will also spur collaboration between AWP centers and private preschools to guarantee sustainable training and capacity enhancement.
Stage 4: Transition to Scale
In India, health services in indigenous tribal area of Maharashtra are provided through a network of the public health system. Anganwadi workers, local community based workers under the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS), established in 1975, provide supplementary nutrition, preschool education, nutrition and health education and referral services. Despite their significant role in child development, AWW are often overburdened due to administrative and documentation related work.
