Status Update: Kenya Fieldwork

Just finished a two day conference on gender and agriculture in Makindu (200 kms from Nairobi) for a regional water productivity project that my research is a part of. It was a yearly progress report that brought in the farmers who are the recipients of global aid projects along with the scientists who are running the rural development programs. Kenya Ministry of Agriculture was there, along with Ministry of Water and Gender. I presented my research along with other students with the project. Farmer reps said they were seeing definite benefits from the research programs, but they were challenged to take ownership of their own development, which they are slowly doing. Their hesitation from being bold comes from being risk averse. Back in Machakos for more soil sampling ๐Ÿ™‚
