The main proposed methodologies are interviews and focus group discussions with caregivers in a sample of communities where aRe Bapaleng has been implanted. Fieldwork will need to be done in Gauteng and Mpumalanga and the evaluation researchers will need to speak local languages spoken in the selected communities. (The full ToR can be found attached).
