What We Do
Before the “start” of a Graduation project, Trickle Up supports implementing partners as they design the project and build their own capacity for Graduation. This includes, but is not limited:
- Feasibility study
- Market and socio-economic assessments
- Targeting and selection support
- Design mission
- Regularly scheduled remote assistance to discuss any adjustments made to project deisgn
- Training of Coaches trainings and support
- Remote launch support
Throughout implementation, Trickle Up provides technical assistance remotely as needed, and ideally conducts two support and learning missions, the first being 6 months into implementation, and the second being 12 months into implementation.
These various touch points and continued technical assistance allow for modifications, adaptations, and learnings that can inform necessary changes to a Graduation pilot, in preparation for a project’s scale up.
With a contextualized Facilitation Guide and Tools, the team designs an effective Graduation program with the implementing partner through an interactive process that usually takes 9-18 months. The process starts with an in-person design mission.
TRAINING OF COACHES
During a Training of Coaches or Training of Trainers session, the team facilitates learning around the coaching visit process and shares Coaching Tools, such as a Graduation Map, a Self-Assessment Tool, and a Household Visit Checklist, and a Coaching Guide.
