The Community Strategies

Hollistic development










  • Ages and Stages test and a home background survey were chosen as the main tools for the evaluation.

  • All children participating in the program were evaluated (for inclusion criteria)

  • Control and intervention communities were selected and among the control communities we have 2 main groups, communities with a similar intervention and communities with no intervention at all.

Other remarks


  • Preliminar multiple regression analysis: Time of participation in Parenting Circles and receiving all health services promoted are associated with a higher probability of having adequate development (5 areas) after controlling for mother’s schooling, sex, child’s age.

  • # of books for children and having done all promoted practices also showed a positive relationship.

  • Positive changes exist also in sanitation practices promoted by the project such as: proper use of latrine, hand washing, water purification and water storage.

  • We could not find significative changes in the nutritional status of children.

Next steps


  • Continue implementation and periodical evaluation.

  • Select a follow up cohort (control and intervention) for a longitudinal study.

  • Complete the study with the second evaluation of the control group not receiving any intervention (not shown in this analysis).

  • Further analysis should be done taking into account the home environment variables as well as the quality of the centres.
