data collection is there to help design the model
what the data is telling you ?
Taking a step back and adapting the actions that worked least well during the workshops in order to make the ASPIRE programme sustainable
Continuous improvement of the programme
In order to get more people to join the ASPIRE programme, the actions must be adapted to their needs and expectations. To do this, we need to :
o Selecting the actions that worked best in order to propose them to the next participants
o Understand why the actions do not work in the territory:
a) is it a problem related to the person who proposes the action?
b) is the content understandable?
c) does the activity meet the needs of the participants?
d) is it related to the planning?
e) the location of the action?
f) the number of people present
Then take corrective action to make it work in the future
The ultimate goal is to adapt the contents of the modules/interventions to the local context. (What works in one city does not necessarily work elsewhere).
“It is important to adapt the program to the changing needs of the participants. For example, the rising cost of fuel in 2022 put our participants in a greater risk of poverty and inability to heat their homes, so we introduced slow cookers into healthy eating activities. It helps to save on energy. We packed activities together, while they are cooking, they have a discussion on healthy eating, then learn about budgeting, go to the garden, it was an opportunity to combine workshop to better help participants”.
