Abstract

Background: Ideally, the social capital of the village community becomes the strength to accelerate the
village development process, experiencing disruption, resulting in the incidence of stunting in children.
Aims: This study aims to explore the root causes of the fragility of stunting social capital and find the right
social strategy in dealing with stunting through the use of social capital of rural communities.
Method: This research uses qualitative research method with case study techniques.
Results: The determinants of social capital disruption for the 1000FDL family are family disorientation
in fostering family members, the widespread use of technology that has resulted in more social distancing
among family members, belief in the myths of maintaining pregnancy and children, and the development of
family pragmatic behaviour in fulfilling life’s needs.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, it is recommended that a program for handling stunting
through community empowerment is focused on extracting the social capital of rural communities. Another
recommendation is that there is a need for verification research to test the significance of the deterministic
factors of social capital disruption that cause stunting.
