Microsol performs Base Line monitoring in Guatemala

Share:

Microsol, working together with our partner EcoComal, has been supervising the Base Line monitoring campaign of the Utsil Naj program in vulnerable communities in Guatemala.

During this campaign, training actions are carried out, open dialogue is promoted between the different actors of the program, and visits are made to families in the field to collect information on their habits (firewood consumption, times, among others). The process is carried out with the support of local interviewers and the accompaniment of a specialist.

“First we meet to indicate the process to follow, then the work is observed, feedback is provided and finally recommendations are given by both parties, EcoComal and Microsol”, indicates the Microsol specialist who is currently participating in this campaign.

 

 

Utsil Naj Program

Utsil Naj, Mayan for “a healthy home for all”, was established in 2012 and covers Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras. The main challenge of having projects in different Latin American countries is that each location presents its own characteristics. Therefore, for Microsol, it is essential to consider the context, the needs, perceptions of each community, and the key actors, the success of the program will depend on it.
