Peace Corps/Washington and Peace Corps/Guatemala collaborated on a process evaluation of the Essential Nutrition Actions and Designing for Behavior Change Training of Trainers (ENA&DBC TOT) Program. The goal of Peace Corps/Guatemala’s ENA&DBC TOT Program is to improve undernutrition-related care at targeted health centers in 30 municipalities in the Western Highlands of Guatemala by increasing the knowledge and skills of health center staff, especially related to breastfeeding, complementary feeding, support groups, counseling, behavior change, and adult learning principles. The objective of the program is to improve the capacity of targeted health centers in Guatemala to carry out activities that improve child and maternal nutrition in the local communities.
The purpose of this evaluation is to:
- identify potential improvements in programmatic components of the delivery model, to assist the program to achieve its planned objectives and expected results;
- identify best practices and recommendations that will support replicability; and
- assess the applicability of the program model for other Peace Corps posts implementing food security and/or nutrition programming, as well as any type of training of trainers (TOT)-style program.
