A Qualitative Post-assessment Study on the Impact of a Parenting Programme Linked to the Government Child Grant in Nepal

The purpose of this study was to follow up on the qualitative pre-assessment conducted in March 2018 of a parenting programme introduced by Save the Children for beneficiaries of the government Child Grant (for under 5s) in Nepal. The parenting initiative is based on the understanding that cash alone will be limited in terms of promoting development of children and that improving parenting skills can be a key approach to maximise outcomes for children of the Child Grant. The parenting programme introduced comprises 14 sessions and a majority of these (8 sessions) were geared towards building a better relationship between caregivers and their children by drawing on the International Child Development Programme (ICDP). Fundamental to the ICDP approach is to bring the child into the caregiver’s zone of empathy, and enhance the caregiver’s ability to attune with- and respond to the child’s needs and initiatives.

The focus of this report is on understanding the impact of the ICDP on the positive parent-child interaction as encouraged in the ICDP sessions.
