The types of data used in this study are quantitative data types and qualitative data types of required data sources, namely primary data and secondary data. The data needed were collected by means of in-depth interviews, observations, documentation.

Findings: The government seeks to overcome stunting in Kupang, TTS and Manggarai Regencies by empowering the community through several stages such as the first stage, namely making the community aware of the importance of increasing self-capacity, in the second stage, namely the transformation stage, opening people's insights in the form of basic knowledge and skills about the role taken in development in the household and in the community. The last or third stage is the improvement of intellectual abilities ranging from skills to skills that can form initiatives and innovation so that it can usher in a pattern of independence.
