Experimental Design (Public) A randomized controlled trial to test, separately and in combination, the effects of religion and character development on health outcomes, economic self-sufficiency, and overall well-being. The intervention will disentangle the effects of religion, values training, and the delivery mechanism by randomizing (a) whether the program is coordinated through pastors in a church or an ICM staff member in a secular setting (village hall), (b) whether or not participants receive values training, and (c) whether the pastor has any involvement in treatment arms without explicit values training. Participants were randomized to either receive (a) health, livelihood, and religious values training; (b) health and livelihood training only; (c) religious values training only; (d) no-intervention control.
