2019 SPHI Brief 40. Scaling Triple S PLUS with gender responsive tools and diverse scaling partners.

Triple S is currently being scaled in Ghana and Ethiopia by two scaling champions, using gender responsive tools and a scaling strategy developed with diverse partners. We used the theory of scaling and tools to support responsible scaling of the innovation as a package. The project is validating different gender responsive communications such as stepdown trainings using printed materials, video and radio in both countries. In 18 months, this initiative, in close collaboration with scaling partners was able to reach 57,655 farmers (66.5% women) in Ghana. In Ethiopia, the project has reached 9,958 farmers (25% women) through stepdown training, video and healthy living club training approaches. Scaling is a very complex process, requiring flexibility in establishing and building partnerships, and navigating unforeseen situations.
