Inter-Personal Communication (IPC) Project


The project on participatory communication with marginalised communities by using innovative communication training tools to build social and behaviour change communication skills of frontline functionaries on IYCF and maternal nutrition was implemented in 45 remote villages of Harichandanpur and Banspal Block of Keonjhar district during the period 2017-2019. The project was implemented for eighteen months ending February 2019. This project has given positive results in terms of increase in demand for services and improvement in the communication skills of the frontline workers. The learnings from the project have been very significant and this calls for a focused and time bound intervention for bringing about consistent and permanent behavior change among the tribal communities by scaling up the same in other Gram Panchayats/Blocks of the District. This project with the financial support of UNICEF was taken up by WOSCA and following are the achievements:

  • A cadre of 350 women SHG members built up their ability to communicate the IYCF practices to peers.
