In collaboration with PRO-WASH, SCALE is launching in-country support in Bangladesh with a training of trainers (ToT) on communication, negotiation, and social and behavior change skills. The ToT will use a modified version of the TOPS-produced Make Me a Change Agent (MMCA) training that was recently piloted in DRC and in Uganda. The guide has been modified for at agriculture, WASH, natural resource management and livelihoods staff and will be available on the FSN Network later this year.

This training will primarily target agriculture and WASH staff from the three DFSA and will take place in Cox’s Bazar. Additionally, some spaces will be reserved for other stakeholders such as from the USAID Bangladesh Mission, other local USAID-funded projects, local universities, government, or technical organizations, and/or local consultants, to build a cadre of qualified Make Me a Change Agent trainers to cascade the training over time. Each training will have up to 30 participants.

The training will incorporate facilitator, technical officer, and master training components over a 3-week period, to ensure a cadre of trained implementers and trainers. Prior to the technical officer and master training, we will work closely with facilitators and translators from the DFSAs, who will then take the lead on delivering the training with support from the PRO-WASH and SCALE training specialists.
