Abstract:

This paper offers an analytic description of a set of trans-nationally designed, funded and implemented training interventions that target primary and secondary caregivers in high poverty settings in Central Orissa. By employing a case study approach, it explores what designers, implementers, target groups and state agencies hold the meanings and purposes of early childhood development to be, and how these understandings are realized and transformed in the processes and interactions that constitute the training interventions. In particular, it looks at notions of ‘holistic’ child development, ‘localization’ and ‘empowerment,’ and explores: how they are operationalized in the design and delivery of the training program; how they are received and instantiated by mothers and ‘anganwadi’ workers in their situated contexts, characterized by high poverty, caste/tribe-based social marginalization and the low status of female caregivers.
The paper also explicates how the training interventions ‘fit’ the particular socio-cultural contexts of five districts in Central Orissa, in terms of curriculum design, the modality of the training program, and its distributed model. Finally, it investigates the impact of these interventions beyond the training-room, by tracing how new caregiver knowledge, attitudes and behaviors shape the daily lives and well-being of caregivers and the children in their care. In a region marked by poor child development outcomes (high rates of malnutrition, mortality and disease, and low levels of awareness about child development practices), and where ‘anganwadi’ centers are the primary site of state resources for young children, the paper demonstrates why the training interventions have such great potential.
