We are not selling our model. It is free to any individual or group that wants to replicate the TCP Global model. What we do is very simple, and requires virtually zero-overhead, and it is sustainable. While it is a simple model to implement, it took us seven years of trial and error to figure it out.
The TCP Global team is prepared to help others avoid the agony of those first seven years and get right to the rewarding part of seeing quantitative and qualitative results of efforts to help marginalized peoples improve their lives. Mentoring materials on this site are intended to guide analysis, not replace it. Every country and every site is different.
