Under the BEIF project, wives of plantation workers were organized into core groups and trained in family planning. Each woman was then made responsible for motivating 30 households. These women held part-time jobs in the plantation and were compensated for their extra work as family planning and nutrition agents. The project accomplished a high percentage of sterilization acceptors - 22 percent.
