A process evaluation will assess the fidelity including quality of implementation of the behavioral change component in the second phase of the program. The evaluation will also seek a better understanding of linkages with health, education and civil registration services that work on early child development and how these can be strengthened. The mixed methods approach of the evaluation will entail observations of program activities, as well as focus group discussions and interviews with program actors and beneficiaries.
