The development of any country depends on its Human Resources and its development starts from early childhood. Government of India implemented ICDS Programme on 2nd October 1975 under the Department of Women and Child Development. Under ICDS different services are rendered through Anganwadi Centres at the grass root level with the help of the Anganwadi workers. The Anganwadi workers are playing a crucial role to deliver the services to a wide range of population which includes growth tracking, health checkups, nutrition and health education, referral services, etc. This study aims to evaluate the attitude and human resource development of grass root level workers for a healthy environment. The present study was carried out in Imphal East, Manipur with a total of 150 Anganwadi workers selected randomly and interviewed with structured schedule. The data revealed that majority of the respondents had medium level of participation towards capacity training programs attended. Moreover, majority of the respondents had medium level of attitude towards the training programs attended. Hence, to strengthen Anganwadi services and to achieve intended outcomes, capacity building programs should be a priority area.
