Abstract:
The study aimed to explore the effect of intervention on self-efficacy among rural women. An experimental research design was employed in the study with purposive sampling technique to select 60 rural women (18 to 35 years) from four villages of two mandals of Bhiwani district in Haryana. A self-developed interview schedule was used to collect the data in two phases i.e. before intervention and after the intervention. The collected data were coded and analyzed using frequencies, percentages, mean, and paired t-test to study the effect of the intervention on self-efficacy. The pre-test results indicated that before the intervention, very few (3%) of the respondents had high level of self-efficacy, nearly two-fifths (45%) of them had moderate level whereas more than half (52%) of them had low level of self-efficacy. A need-based intervention was developed and given to the respondents for two weeks. Post-intervention changes were observed and it was found that the respondents falling under the high level had remarkably shifted from 3% to 30% i.e., nearly one-third of the rural women acquired high self-efficacy after the intervention. Slightly less than two-thirds (63%) acquired moderate level and only 7% of the respondents were found to have low level of self-efficacy after the intervention. Also, the calculated t-value was found to be significant at 0.01 level of probability. Therefore, the null hypothesis was rejected and the alternative hypothesis was accepted i.e. the intervention was effective in increasing self-efficacy among rural women.
