Hosaena has gone the the field (Mahonee) with the enumerators while the Master students are preparing to join in for the fieldwork from tomorrow. Bethelhem Legesse is supposed to arrive from Addis today. Bethelhem Koru from Mekelle Univ. and previous MSc.-student in the program will also join in the fieldwork. I am working on editing and updating the survey instruments to fit them to the topics chosen by the students and to take into account new changes that are important to take into account. Hosaena came back from the field 10:30 last night (Sunday) and left again (05:00) this morning to follow up the fieldwork. I also stayed in the office the whole day and worked till late on the preparations, so we are not quite loafing around…. Now we hope also to get the students going so that the fieldwork is not delayed and data quality compromized. The students and enumerators will be divided in three groups to survey three villages at the time. Each village should take about one week. Some of them are really remotely located. Typically the local school is then used as the bedroom.
