Ready To Go is an efficient and effective two-day training program. Based on best practice standards, Ready To Go provides participants with the skills and confidence needed to become effective enumerators. Ready To Go is a proven training method that has been applied in several countries, in both urban and rural settings, and has seen the participation of a diverse set of trainees.
