Abstract:
Integrated Child Development Service (ICDS) scheme is the most important program in the area of child welfare. The effectiveness of the program depends upon the efficiency of its functionaries at grass root level i.e. Anganwadi workers (AWW). This paper attempts to explore the practice level, constrains faced by the AWWs and also their suggestive measures. The present study was carried out in Imphal East, Manipur where a total of 150 Anganwadi workers were selected randomly. The data of Anganwadi workers was assessed by interviewing with the help of structured interview schedule and informal discussion. The data were analysed using statistical methods including percentage, frequency, mean score and Standard Deviation. The findings of the study revealed that majority of the AWWs had medium practice level. Further, the major constraints faced by the Anganwadi workers were work overload followed by inadequate salary, engagement in other work, etc. And, also the Anganwadi workers have suggested adequate salary relevant to their job, reduction in workload, need of capacity building training, etc.
