8 Proposal for additional interventions Likely innovations proposed under APIP
9 Likely innovations proposed under APIP Pre- fixed day viz. Anganwadi Divas in each month:For various forms of community participation in ICDS such as, Wall painting at AWCs, innovation of AWCs, preparation of PSE Day.This will help in increasing public interest and further involvement of community, awareness about utility of ICDS among the community.2. Social AuditThe PIP has made provision for introducing social auditing system and to ensure participatory decision making system in ICDS. It has also proposed to introduce public display/ hearing system in implementation of the scheme.3. Uniform for AWW ,It has been proposed that apron with colour code can be provided in place of uniform to the AWWs since the fund provided is not sufficient.4. Mother’s Support Group or Matri Sahayak Gut:With the objective of involving mothers of the primary beneficiaries i.e. children below 6 years of age of the locality in management and operation of AWC & other schemes. State Government have initiated, vide notification no. SWD.617/2011/61 dated 2nd March 2012, the constitution of ‘Mother’s Support Group (MSG) or Matri Sahayak Gut’ in each of the AWCs in all the ICDS projects of Assam w.e.f. 1st April, 2012
10 Likely innovations proposed under APIP The new schemes Viz SABLA is being implemented in 8 districts (Kamrup, Kokrajhar, Dhubri, Dibrugrah, Darrang, Karbi Anglong, Hailakandi and Jorhat),The program “IGMSY” taken as pilot project in two districts (Kamrup and Goalpara) will be replicate to other districts in phased manner.NRC (Nutrition Rehabilitation center)For management of Severe acute malnourished children four NRC are established in 4 districts by NRHM, DSW will support the community care component. This will be extended to six more districts – Dibrugarh, Morigaon, Goalpara, Nalbari, Naogaon and Dhubri in (Approval of NRHM PIP has been received)Kishori Diwas – The programme is arranged in “SABLA” districts for the adolescent girls once in three months. All the enrolled adolescent girls of the locality of an AWC are invited along with the parents. Necessary health check- ups are done by the NRHM functionaries. They are given demonstration of preparing nutritious recipes. Referral services are also rendered where needed.
11 Likely innovations proposed under APIP “Pratham Ahhar” to introduce complementary feeding, Prathom Ahar is piloted in selected AWC of five districts jointly by NGO and DSW with technical support of UNICEF and will be scaled up in all IGMSY and 10 NRC districts for improving IYCN component with support of NRHM by using VHSNC (Village Health, Sanitation and Nutrition Committee) funds.“Matri Amrit” to strengthen ANC services and counselling to pregnant mother, Mtriamrit is piloted in selected AWC of five districts jointly by NGO and DSW with support of UNICEF will be scaled up in all IGMSY and SABLA districts with support of NRHM by using VHSNC (Village Health, Sanitation and Nutrition Committee) funds .Kitchen gardens: Kitchen Garden is an innovative approach aiming to promote nutrition security and food diversity to fulfil the additional nutritional requirements of adolescence age. Adolescent girl clubs have been formed and trained to develop and maintain kitchen gardens, proper cooking practices for preserving nutrients through cooking demonstration and recipes contest with the help of home science faculty of AMCH. New Kitchen Gardens in crèches and Tea Garden Hospitals are developed.
12 Likely innovations proposed under APIP Model AWC (adoption of 10 AWC by CDPOs):With the view of developing AWCs provided with all facilities, it was initiated to create 10 model AWCs from each ICDS projects. These AWCs will be developed focusing on effective delivery of services by upgrading the skills of the AWWs and AWHs through need based trainings and making available all the facilities in the centers. Adoption of AWCs will be done in a phased manner by respective CDPOs.Creating field learning sites (FLS):DSW has undertaken an initiative in developing selected focus AWCs as ‘Field Learning Sites’ (FLS) which then will capacitate the nearby AWWs (10 AWCs per focus AWCs) focusing in the areas of ICDS service delivery. The activities under FLS are undertaken with active involvement of concerned Supervisors and CDPOs under the guidance and support of the Directorate of Social Welfare, Assam, UNICEF & local NGO. Keeping in mind the creative innovation of adopting AWCs as FLS in the said districts, it is proposed to extend the concept in the districts of Kamrup(R) and Goalpara. In the two districts efforts will be made to create 10% of total AWCs as FLS by
13 Likely innovations proposed under APIP Increase involvement of AWMC members in AWC monitoring through capacity building: To improve the implementation of ICDS services, efforts were made in Dibrugarh district to strengthen AWCMC and involve PRI members through orientation of AWCMC and PRI members. The process would be gradually extended to other districts as well.Group supervision in difficult areas: As Assam is widely diverse and complex in its topography from hilly terrain to uneven valley including hilly areas, char areas, tea garden areas, and forest and border areas, riverine areas etc., AWCs located in these areas are not easily accessible for ICDS Supervisors. Therefore, regular supervision of these AWCs has posed a major challenge for the ICDS functionaries. To address this challenge, Group Supervision was initiated. This practice has been proved to be rewarding.
14 Likely innovations proposed under APIP Accreditation of AWCs: Since the Ministry of Women and Child Development is insisting on a uniform system for grading the AWCs across the country on the basis of overall quality of service being rendered by each AWC to improve the present status of the programme, an initiative was taken by Dibrugarh district with support from UNICEF. It is proposed to adopt the process of accrediting the AWCs in 13 districts inIncrease involvement of AWMC members in AWC monitoring through capacity building: To improve the implementation of ICDS services, efforts were made in Dibrugarh district to strengthen AWCMC and involve PRI members through orientation of AWCMC and PRI members. The innovation is proposed to scale-up in three ICDS projects viz. Titabor (Jorhat district), Chaygaon (Kamrup district) and Dimoria (Kamrup district) inThe Developmental Screening Schedule (DSS), namely the Childhood Developmental Screening Schedule-Mental Health (CDSS-MH) is specifically developed to be used in the Anganwadi centres of Assam for children in the age group of 0 to 6 years.
