How to participate in PROSA

The main goal of J-PAL LAC and UVG’s PROSA is to build solid long-term relationships for generating and applying evidence for programs with the potential to impact Early Childhood Development (ECD).

Tells us about your work on ECD

Do you have an intervention or program that involves Early Childhood Development? This may include topics that relate to early childhood such as:

     Health      Nutrition Home Environment Stimulation & Development
Health Icon Nutrition Icon Home Environment Stimulation & Development


PROSA also considers cross-cutting interventions to help caregivers overcome barriers that prevent them from investing in early childhood development, such as cash transfers.

Training Sessions and Collaboration Opportunities

PROSA has a standard process for selecting organizations to develop partnerships. Interested organizations may apply through a Training Request to receive three introductory training sessions on impact evaluation and evidence use. The training sessions will help to connect and learn from organizations implementing interventions around early childhood development in Guatemala. After these sessions, J-PAL will continue conversations with participating organizations to define next steps. These next steps may include: 1) presenting and disseminating relevant evidence to inform specific programs; 2) partner with organization that are eligible and interested in receiving technical assistance from PROSA experts; 3) partner with organizations that align with PROSA’s research agenda and assess the feasibility of designing evidence-informed innovations and/or conducting randomized evaluations. 

If you are a government institution and are interested in participating in Training Sessions, new information to register will be made available in January of 2024.

You may register between two and six members of your organization. 

Who’s eligible to apply to receive evidence use webinars?

All organizations working in Early Childhood Development or that work with related cross-cutting topics established in FAQ 1.
