Child development is key issue for any civil society and it can be achieved through different focused interventions to improve the living standard of poor people so that every mother can take good care of her child. Government of India is also running a flagship scheme ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) to cater child development across the country. The ICDS adopts a multi- sectoral approach to child well being, incorporating health, education and nutrition interventions, and is implemented through a network of Anganwadi centers (AWCs) at the community level. At present ICDS is running all across India and it is effective in the study area also. Beneficiaries of different services provided by Anganwadi Centers and ICDS group interventions are satisfied but they are still not much aware of different provisions of ICDS and other schemes which can benefit them. This study also shows how small interventions at grassroots level can change the scenario as well as the fruits of involving beneficiaries in delivery mechanism of scheme itself. This participation has improved their earnings and on the other hand increased their self confidence.
