Dispatch from the field: Surveys and sensemaking in sunny Mombasa

“Everyone says fieldwork is the highlight of their Fellowship.

They post Instagram stories with wide smiles and breathtaking landscapes, share harrowing stories about road conditions or visa checks, and return home more worldly, thoughtful, and tired. I was ready to go. I wanted to be the one to leave my comfy Nairobi office and return more worldly, thoughtful, and tired.”

Lauren Chang is currently working as a Gender Fellow at the Centre of Excellence in Women and Child Health East Africa, Aga Khan University.
